Daley Blind says that confidence is ever growing at Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho’s men made it five consecutive victories on Boxing Day in the game against Sunderland, report the Manchester Evening News.
Following a shaky spell in September and October, United have hit their stride and are unbeaten in the Premier League for two months.
Blind scored the opening goal in United’s win over David Moyes’ Black Cats at Old Trafford.
And he told MUTV : “We have a lot of confidence now and we’re in good shape. We need to work hard and keep that feeling up and win games. Of course we want to keep this run going and we’ll work hard to do that.
“In the second half we had difficulty getting the ball but after that second goal it became a lot easier for us. Sunderland didn’t create many chances and we created good chances. So I think we did well.
“In the end it was a difficult game, we played very good and got the result. We didn’t have a clean sheet but it’s a good result and I feel confident to move forward like this.”
Blind, back in the side at the expense of Matteo Darmian, was delighted with his goal after he timed his run into the area perfectly to meet Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s lay-off and find the far corner.
He added: “There was so much space to run into and Zlatan gave me the ball, which was one touch and then a finish. It was a good feeling to score it and it was important to score before half-time.”
