An optimistic Jesse Lingard believes Manchester United remain in the race for the EPL, if they can maintain their form.
The Manchester club is 13 points behind table toppers Chelsea and earlier this week Mourinho conceded the top spot could be out of reach.
And with United claiming victories in their last three league games, Lingard will not give up on the title just yet.
“If the lads stick together and win the games we should be winning then I do not see why we cannot be in a good position in May and challenging for the title,” the 24-year-old told the club’s official website.
“We have found our match rhythm now. A lot of players are playing their part and helping us win games.
“I think the defence has been very good for us, particularly over the last three or four games.
“We need to keep that going over the Christmas period and if we can do that it will put us in a good place in January.”
