Manchester United’s Robin Van Persie believes his side can catch Chelsea this season

After scoring in the last minute to rescue a point against league leaders Chelsea, Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie believes they can catch the Londoners, reports Sky Sports.

Manchester United impressed against Chelsea for the first-half of the game, and were unlucky to not go ahead in the match. Van Persie popped up with a last minute equaliser to rescue a deserved point, and now United are hopeful of climbing up the table.

“Of course we can (catch them), there’s a long way to go, nine games played and it’s not even halfway (through the season). We are better every day. In training and if you look at games, you can see we are comfy on the ball and playing better. Now we try to aim to play like that for an hour and a half,” said Van Persie.

United are currently 10 points adrift of Chelsea in the table, with Louis Van Gaal’s side sitting in 8th place. They have Manchester City (away) and Arsenal (away) as two of their four fixtures in November which will test their chances of catching Chelsea.
