Manchester United star Juan Mata is worried about Liverpool overtaking them in the race to finish in the Premier League top four, reports the Daily Express.
The Red Devils have lost three games in a row, with the defeats coming against Chelsea, Everton, and West Brom. They also haven’t even scored since the Manchester derby on April 12. They have been largely let off by their Merseyside rivals who drew with the Baggies and lost to Hull City in the same period.
However, the Reds managed to win on Saturday to close the gap to fourth place to four points, and United could be in trouble if they continue to drop points. However, with only three matches left in the campaign Brendan Rodgers’ side may still simply run out of time to break in to the Champions League qualification places.
Mata said: “It’s a frustrating afternoon for us. If you don’t score, it’s impossible to win. We know some teams will do this and we have to find a way to beat them. We need to learn from this and keep going. We know that Liverpool and more teams are coming from behind so we need more points as soon as possible.”
