Manchester United legend Dimitar Berbatov has warned the team against complacency after our recent run of impressive results as we aim to secure a top-four finish.
Two wins and one draw in the Premier league coupled with mixed results for top-four hopefuls Chelsea and Leicester City has seen us just three points off third spot.
With just six Premier League matches left to play this season, Berbatov has advised the players to remain consistent and focused.
“Their performance against Brighton was great, but now it’s over and if they lose the next game, their work will count for nothing,” Berbatov told Betfair.
“I’m pretty sure other teams will be sitting up and paying attention to how well United are doing at the moment, and how improved they are, especially those teams that are fighting with them for top four.
“Now, consistency is key and we must remember that United have had some good games in the past but haven’t really built on that, and they dropped points and didn’t achieve their goals.
“Now, I think they have their priority in sight, and if they continue to play the way they have shown they can since the restart they will have a really strong finish.
“The United players shouldn’t be getting carried away and I don’t think they will be doing. We are talking about Man United getting into the top four here, while not long ago it was all about being the top one.
“That should be enough of a kick and a motivation for the team to say this is their chance to do something here, starting by qualifying for the Champions League and then take it from there.
“This is Manchester United after all and fighting for just the top four is a step back, they need to do more, but the first thing to do is to get Champions League football.
“If they continue the way they are going at the moment then they have a great chance to achieve their goals at the end of the season.”
