Fred reveals how Manchester United can cope with our gruelling fixture schedule

Manchester United star Fred has spoken out on the club’s tough fixture scheduling and believes our squad depth will be important at this stage of the season.

He also wants the team to pick up points during this stage to help us stay in contention at the top.

When asked about Manchester United’s demanding fixture list, Fred told the official website: “There are a lot of games but what’s good about it is we’ve got a really good group, and we will need everyone.

“That’s the best thing about having the group: we will be able to help each other, because there will be injuries, knocks and niggles.

“Getting a consecutive run of games and a consecutive run of wins is the goal. We know our strengths and we know what we need to work on.

“As I said, we have a good group and l want to try and get a good run of victories in this intense period.”

Meanwhile, we play host to West Brom this weekend as we look for our first home win for the season.
