The Red Devils stretched their winless run in the league to three games after a shambolic display at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Nemanja Matic insists Manchester United still have a shot at winning the Premier League this season and that they “don’t want to give up until the end.”

Manchester United are going through turbulent times, having picked up just 14 points out of a possible 24 so far in the 2021-22 campaign.

Winless in their last three league outings, the Red Devils have fallen five points behind leaders Chelsea in the title race.

Things are only going to get more difficult for Ole Gunnar Solskaer’s men, who go against Liverpool, Tottenham, and Manchester City in their next three league fixtures.

“We are sorry for them [the supporters]. They support us, especially away [and] they are top,” Matic told the club’s official website. “They deserve much, much better than this. We will do our best to make them happy in the future.

“But we have 14 points – we are still in the title race. We don’t want to give up until the end.

“Every next game is the most important; every next game is a new challenge, an opportunity to show your qualities.

“We’re going to take responsibility; we’re going to step up and see what we can do. I’m sure that we can do a lot.”
