Nemanja Matic has warned Chelsea and Leicester City that Manchester Unite’s top-four fate still rests in their own hands despite Monday’s 2-2 draw with Southampton. United missed the chance to move third in the Premier League after conceding a 96-minute equaliser at Old Trafford. With Manchester United set to face Leicester on the final day of the season, Matic has insisted their destiny is very much in their control despite dropping points.
Nemanja Matic said “We have to keep our head up, we have three games to go. The next one is Crystal Palace on Thursday if we win the last three games we are in the Champions League, So we have to stay positive and keep working as we were until now. Everything is in our hands. It’s in our hands, we have to recover as soon as possible. We have another game now, against a very good team again, so we have to go with everything because we want to play Champions League next season. I think we deserve that, so I want to say we work positively, recover well and we will see on Thursday if we are ready. I am sure the team is ready. Of course, three months ago it was not in our hands. We needed Chelsea and Leicester to drop points, which they did obviously. Now we are a point behind Chelsea and it’s in our hands. We’ll take it game by game. We’ll think about Palace first, then if we do our job there like we normally do. The next two weeks are very important for us, We will give everything, we promise that we will give everything for this club to play Champions League, of course, the FA Cup semi-final against Chelsea, we will give our best to make our supporters proud.”
