Manchester United defender Chris Smalling has spoken to ManUtd.com, telling the website that he is hopeful of the side keeping their excellent run going into the new year and climbing the table as a result.
The Red Devils have not lost since November 8 2014, a run of 11 matches without defeat, with 10 coming in the Premier League.
This has pushed Man Utd from mid table to third place in the English top flight, and as a result, they look set to qualify for the Champions League.
While both Chelsea and Manchester City are seemingly in a mini league for the title itself, Man Utd could still push for a title challenge, with the right form.
They are also through to the fourth round of the FA Cup, after beating Yeovil Town 2-0 away from home.
With the quest for Champions League football and silverware on the cards, Smalling is keen to carry on the hard work and achieve come the end of the season.
He said: “Going into the New Year on the back of a good run means that it’s a case of working even harder to climb the table and get as many points as we can.
“We need to do as much as possible on the pitch and, as an individual, do as much as we can in terms of recovery and extra work.”
