‘We need to Beat Spurs for our Title Hopes’ Says Fred
Manchester United midfielder Fred says his team must beat Tottenham at Old Trafford this weekend to keep their title hopes on track. United fell to a 3-2 defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday.
Speaking to Sky Sports News, the Brazilian said, “It's a very important game. This week we've been working, focusing on this game, we want to go out and get the win in front of our home fans.
“We know Tottenham are a great team but we need to get the win if we are to aspire to win the league.” Fred admitted the better side won at the AMEX last weekend.
“The Premier League is a great league and there are a lot of great teams and Brighton were better than Man United," he said.
"They got early goals which we didn't manage to achieve, we improved but unfortunately this wasn't enough for a win or a draw.
“Going into the next game we want to be focused and we want to win so we can stay in the race for the title."
