“SILLY TO RULE OUT”
Luke Shaw has warned Manchester United critics they would be ‘silly’ to rule United out of the title fight this season.
United have won six of their last seven and are unbeaten since November 1.
Shaw hopes the maintained consistency will see them force their way into the title reckoning.
Shaw told Sky Sports: “The way the Premier League is going at the moment, I think it would be silly to doubt us.
“The team that takes charge, goes well over the Christmas period, and wins all their games, I think have got a very good chance.
“We just need to try and get consistency in our game, because we can’t keep having one good game and dropping off and then having one bad game.
“There’s no way you can mount a title challenge like that so I think we need to keep consistency and see where it takes us.
“The Champions League really hurt, but I think performance-wise if we get that consistency, then we’ll be in a much better place than we are already.
“Of course, we’ve got lots to improve on, all teams do at times, but if we can keep improving and keep that consistency, I’m sure we’ll be in a much better place.”
