Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic believe his side have the quality to mount a title challenge in this season’s Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team made it six games unbeaten in the English top flight with a 3-2 victory over Sheffield United on Thursday night.

And that result now means that if the Old Trafford side can win their game in hand, they’ll only be two points of table-topping Liverpool.

And Matic belivies with some improvements in their form there’s no reason why Man United can’t be challenging for the title like the best of the rest.

"I don't think we started slowly, we knew what to expect, they would fight for their life. Unluckily we conceded a goal with a small mistake but were capable of turning the game, scoring three goals.

"It's a very important three points for us, takes us closer to the top teams. They don't deserve to only have one point this season, but that's football.

"If we continue this way. It's going to be tight sometimes but we have to show our quality every single game. I believe we have the quality to fight for the title, if we are going to win, I don't know."
