Mata: United Need To Be Consistent To Contend For Premier League Title

  • Man Utd Jose Mourinho

Cape Town - Manchester United defender Phil Jones insists Jose Mourinho's men do not fear any of the Premier League's top sides despite finishing the season in sixth position. But we know we can certainly challenge better than we have done this season in the league.

However, despite a flawless start in the league after three games, United struggled and despite putting together a 25-game unbeaten run after losing 4-0 at Chelsea, they ultimately ended sixth - 24 points off the champions.

However, regardless of what happens with United's current number one this summer, Ederson looks very likely to be lining up for rivals City next season rather than in Mourinho's side.

The European triumph followed the EFL Cup and Community Shield wins has Jones upbeat about next season.

Mata was sold from Chelsea to United in 2014 by Mourinho, whose arrival at Old Trafford as Louis van Gaal's replacement prompted speculation the midfielder could leave Old Trafford.

Kim Kardashian deletes social media post on Manchester attack after fiery backlash
While the picture might not have been the best idea (which she seems to have realized in retrospect), her words were heartfelt. The tweet also included a photo of Kardashian, her sister Kendall Jenner and Grande, taken a year ago at a Kanye West concert.

"Game by game I was trying to feel it and to adapt myself to the English Premier League".

There's no guarantee that United won't find themselves in a similar situation next term, and fans will be hopeful of repeating their cup successes of this season when competitive action resumes in August.

The 29-year-old, who made 47 appearances in all competitions this season, told hln.be: "When I feel that people trust me, I'm prepared to do everything".

"I'll never forget the reactions that we've seen all these days everywhere in the city (union, solidarity, respect, and many more values that make Manchester such a special place), and the ability of football to bring people together, to help, to contribute, beyond rivalries and tensions".
