Manchester United defensive midfielder, Morgan Schneiderlin, has had a great week, not only did he score the opener against Everton, but he also put in a solid performance against CSKA Moscow to stop them from scoring in open play.
Speaking to MUTV, the Frenchman has had this to say about his successful week:
“I always say, for me, it’s not the most important thing for me to score a goal.
“The most important thing for me is how I feel on the pitch and I feel better and better as the weeks go on.
“I feel very good physically and my confidence is high. I’m happy with the way I’m playing. I need to keep going and scoring the goal was the icing on the cake.”
Schneiderlin goes on to explain how the Manchester derby, this weekend, is not make or break, but it is a very important match up:
“It won’t say everything about how the rest of the season will go but it will mark a print [in the season].”
“And, if we can win this game and beat City and possibly get back to first place, it will make a statement again.
“So, for us, it’s very important to do that especially in front of our own fans. But, whatever happens, it won’t be the end, we still need to work hard because it’s a long season.”
Manchester United are only 2 points behind Manchester City in the Premier League table and so, if Arsenal lose, then United could go top of the league.
