“I want to stamp down my place in this team,” Fletcher said. “But most importantly I want to keep winning things and feel as though I have played a part. Personal praise is nice but United being successful is what matters most and there is always a new challenge. I strive every day in training to be a regular in the team. You want to play in all the games. We have a number of quality midfielders but as long as you are playing well, the manager sticks with you. I have gone onto the pitch with the attitude that every game is a fresh challenge, no matter what I did in the last one. My attitude is firstly that United win and second I want to keep my place in the team. I know if my standards slip there are any number of top-class midfielders waiting to come in and take my place.”
