Manchester United are currently within touching distance of the top four, just a solitary point behind rivals City, who are in fourth spot in the Premier League table.
It has been another generally disastrous term at Old Trafford under Dutch manager Louis van Gaal, with United knocked out of the Champions League in the group stage before being crushed out by arch-rivals Liverpool in the Europa League round of 16.
Although everything seems difficult for the Red Devils, midfielder Marouane Fellaini has moved to address hateful fans and explained why he’s positive that United will see good time again, but he stresses they should earn a spot in next season’s Champion’s League.
“In football you will always have some people with you and some against you… this is football,” he said.
“Not all the fans can love you. But I do my job. I try to do my best on the pitch, I work hard, I give everything for more than 90 minutes, and for me these are the most important things. I try to do everything for the manager and for the club. And the rest? I don’t listen. I don’t look. I just try to do my job.”
The former Everton player believes the Red Devils have the ability to beat any team in the world but understands the threat Spurs pose.
“It’s a big, big game,” Fellaini told Manchester Evening News. “Tottenham are near the top of the table. But it’s a huge game for us as well. We want to be in that top four. A club like Man United has to play Champions League so we will go there and do our best to try and win the game.”
