Blind backs United charge


United lost 1-0 to West Brom this past weekend but remain in the hunt for a top-four finish in the Premier League, while they are also active in the Europa League and FA Cup.

Louis van Gaal's men will visit Liverpool in the last-16 of the continental event on Thursday, with the return leg taking place a week after Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final with West Ham at Old Trafford.

"I think it's a season with ups and downs. We have played many good games but we lost a few as well," Blind told United Review.

"I think we are improving as a team and can move on from here.

"The most important thing is this team sticks together. We have done all season, even when we've had bad results. That shows the strength of the dressing room.

"It (a top-four finish) is not out of reach. Still, anything is possible.

"We have some players coming back now from injuries, which enables us to have a bigger squad again.

"We are still in the race for a trophy and the top four. We can finish strongly and I have a lot of faith in us doing that."
