Fletcher hails never-say-die attitude

Darren Fletcher believes Manchester United's never-say-die attitude will help them in their fight to reclaim the Premier League title this season.

United have come from behind to win on a number of occasions already this campaign, and head into the busy festive period leading the league table by six points over rivals Manchester City.

And Fletcher feels this same mentality that has seen the club turn a string of games around this season will also put them in good stead for the title race.

"The never-say-die attitude is ingrained in this club," he said. "It comes from the players, who believe in themselves, and opposition teams, who fear it.

"The club has such a history of it you almost expect it to happen. We have a great bunch of players with a great attitude. We will fight right to the very end.

"And the history of the club definitely plays a part. There is a psychological factor of going into the last ten minutes knowing United will throw everything at them. They withdraw because they realise what is coming.

"We are very patient. It is not route one and it is always with a purpose. We get the ball wide and try to create chances. Long may it continue."

Despite United ending the year in a position of strength, Fletcher realises the title race is not over yet, and has warned his team-mates it would be foolish to think any different after City overturned an eight-point deficit in the final games of last season.

"The biggest thing is not taking it for granted," he said. "We can't afford to look at the league table and think we are in a comfortable position. The experience of last season proves that is not the case."
