Axel Tuanzebe claims the next two matches are very decisive about their title-winning chance.

Manchester United

has beaten


to reach the fourth round of the FA Cup. Scott McTominay who wore the armband scored the goal in the second minute and that was enough for the Red Devils to defeat Watford.

Axel Tuanzebe

was one of 9 changes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made to rest some players.

The defender was able to record a clean sheet with the Manchester United shirt. He talks about the winning spirit among his teammates.

“We want to be top of the league, you know, and this is the time to do it,”

home-grown defender Tuanzebe said.

“Two games that can really cement our position at the top and we just bounce on from there.”

The young defender also spoke about the difficulty of playing with so many changes in the starting line-up against the Championship side.

“Sometimes games like this are scrappy,”

Tuanzebe said.

“A lot of changes to the team, so it’s hard to have a rhythm, a pattern of play, but job done.”

“I’m feeling alright. I would obviously love to get more minutes, so I can constantly keep my performances up.

“Obviously the team are doing well so the only way in is really to force myself in by playing well in the chances that I do get.

“Sometimes they can just come out of the blue but the main thing today is that we kept a clean sheet and we won the game.”
