Juan Mata claimsthat Manchester United have the belief to win the Premier League title this season. United have made a faveolus start to the season, with a record of back to back 4-0 thrashing and easily beatinf Leicester City to be on the top of the table.


When asked whether there was belief in the squad that a Premier League title challenge awaits, Mata said: ‘The belief is always there.

‘When you play for such a club you start every competition believing that you can win it. Some bad games didn’t allow us to win it last year, but we need to find that consistency that can make us fight in the last months and be one of those teams that will be up there.

‘It’s the second year for the manager, he knows everyone better, and we know each other better, so let’s try. We’re really pleased with our start, but it’s only a start. We’ve won three games with confidence and good football.’

The Spain international added: ‘But there’s still a lot to play for. Stoke is going to be tough, but we’re confident and the team is strong, mentally and physically. We’re playing good as a team.

And Mata insists there is more to come from the 19-year-old forward: ‘Since the first moment we saw him in training, we thought he was special.

‘And he’s making it real. He’s scoring for England, for us [Manchester United] and he has been a really good player and a real threat for opposition defenders. I think he can be even bigger. He has a great mentality and great qualities to become a big, big player.’
