Manchester United midfielder, Fred believes they must beat Tottenham if they are to remain in the race for the title.
The Red Devils played an unconvincing 2-1 win over Leicester in their season opener, before losing 3-2 to Brighton.
Manchester United face Tottenham on Monday and Fred believes it is a crucial encounter.
“It’s a very important game. This week we’ve been working, focusing on this game, we want to go out and get the win in front of our home fans,” Fred told Sky Sports .
“We know Tottenham are a great team, but we need to get the win if we are to aspire to win the league.
“The Premier League is a great league and there are a lot of great teams and Brighton were better than Man United.
“They got early goals which we didn’t manage to achieve. We improved but unfortunately this wasn’t enough for a win or a draw.
“Going into the next game, we want to be focused and we want to win, so we can stay in the race for the title.”
