Man Utd capable of grabbing Champions League spot - Mata

Juan Mata is confident that new club Manchester United can produce a top-four finish this season.

The Red Devils currently sit seventh on the Premier League table, 11 points from fourth-placed Liverpool, but Spanish midfielder Mata is still holding hope of securing a Champions League spot.

"The objective is to get to the Champions League spots," he told Canal+.

"It's difficult because Liverpool are doing well, so are Arsenal, as well as Tottenham and Everton, who are all clubs also fighting for them, but I think we have a team who can do it.

"This is Manchester United. When this club wins two, three or four matches in a row, it has a winner's mentality.

"We are coming and I think we can do it, but we have to win a lot of games first."
