The Red Devils won their last 4 games in the Premier League, but had a shaky start.
believes thatManchester United
's change of mentality has led to their improved performance this season.
The Red Devils started the season with back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Brentford, and the criticism of Erik ten Hag from the fans started very quickly. However, they were able to change the situation after the victory againstLiverpool
and get 3 more victories against Southampton, Leicester City and Arsenal and rank fifth in the league ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea. Now, Martinez claimed that the improvement in mental condition improved the results of the Red Devils.
He told club's website:
"In the beginning it was no good, it was not what we wanted.
"But we changed directly after Brentford. We changed the mentality, we changed the spirit and then we did an amazing job against Liverpool and then we keep going and you can see now every game the team is ready, is ready to fight - the connection with each other is incredible.
"I think we did a fantastic job against Liverpool and Arsenal. But this is Manchester United, no? When the teams come to play in our stadium, they have to feel it was not easy for them. So yes, now we feel very well about it."
After the international break, Manchester United must face City in the Manchester derby, and if they win, they can move up within two points of Guardiola's side.
