Manchester United’s 3-1 victory against Aston Villa on Saturday moved them up to third in the table but they remain eight points off the league leaders who also have a game in hand.
Next week Mata’s side host Manchester City in the derby and they still have games against the Blues and Arsenal before the season finishes and while the target has always been to qualify for the champions League next season, given their current form the Spaniard is looking further than a fourth placed finish and has eyes on top spot:
“We want to finish as high as we can and I think we can win a lot of games between now and the end of the season if we perform like we did in the last few games.” he told the Daily Star Sunday.
“Every point is very important from now until the end and we will look at every game as a final.” he added.
Along with City and the Gunners, the Red Devils will have to win all their remaining games and hope for an almighty slip-up from the Blues in order to snatch the title away in the closing stages of the season.
