Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has stated the importance of keeping focussed now to ensure we’re in the group of teams that pull away from the rest next year as we challenge to win back our title.

“I think this is the time in the season when the table is going to change quite a bit,” said Vidic. “Things have been very tight up to now, but I think that we’ll see two or three teams stepping it up and stretching ahead. By the middle of January we’ll have much more of an idea who is going to be chasing the title. The games come very quickly now, and we have another big one at Chelsea on Sunday, one which we must be ready for.”
