Mata admits Man Utd lack consistency to be Premier League title challengers

The guys respond to your tweets about clubs without trophies, Wayne Rooney and the worst transfers of the year.

United's failure to finish in the top four has been played down by most at the club after they secured a double with the Europa League crown and EFL Cup.

Mourinho stated after United's 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final on Wednesday that Woodward has known the names of the players the manager wants to sign for the last two months.

The midweek Champions League matches will prove more hard in terms of the standard of opponent, but the Red Devils will be well equipped to rotate their side for those games, as they already have in this season's Europa League.

Juan Mata believes without consistency, Manchester United will find it hard to challenge for the EPL.

"But we are aware of our lack of consistency and effectiveness in the Premier League that prevented us from fighting for the title, which is what Manchester United is supposed to do". We worked hard to get there and ultimately the Champions League is where we want to be and the football we want to be playing next season.

Although, it's in the cup competitions where United enjoyed most of their best moments of the season.

"Game by game I was trying to feel it and to adapt myself to the English Premier League". However, I think we deserved to win because ever since the first minute of the final we had a very clear idea of what we wanted and we performed as an experienced, well-prepared team.

According to a report in TransferMarketWeb, Jose Mourinho is set to be offered a bumper new long-term contract by Manchester United.
