He acknowledges we’ve had a tougher start to the season than our rivals, in terms of fixtures, but hopes that we can continue winning, so that we’re on course for another title when our game in hand is played.
“The international week broke that momentum,” said Vidic, “but now we have West Bromwich Albion and I hope we can win. We need to keep winning, we need to maintain that run. It won’t be easy, though: West Brom are a good side and they play good football.”
The Serbian centre-back says there’s little margin for error after a less-than-perfect start to the season.
“I’d love to win six or seven games in a row, even more,” he added. “Last year we didn’t have the best start and the same has happened this season. Liverpool and Chelsea have started very well and we need to follow them. I must point out that we had a very tough schedule in the first few games: we played Liverpool, Chelesa and Blackburn away, which are all tough fixtures. But we’re very positive, we have a good squad and I hope we can continue winning.”
