“We’re in a rich vein of form now. What we have asked them to do, the players have done,” Phelan said.
“There are lots of areas of the game we can improve on. That’s the beauty of it now. We can actually analyse the games that we have played and sometimes we have been fantastic going forward and a little bit sloppy defending.”
“But the players now know both sides of the coin so we can work on that now and that will be our intention leading up to the Tottenham game because that will be a different test.”
“But it’s Wembley – I’m sure Manchester United players love Wembley. I think it’s going to be a great football match and, obviously, Manchester United have to turn up and do what we’re doing and do more and I think we can do that.”
