Everyone will lose games at different times, and it is how you respond to defeat that will measure a team.
Sir Alex Ferguson feels that the distraction of being dubbed 'unbeatable' might have caused losses in successive English Premier League matches to Liverpool and Fulham, and hopes that lessons have been learned to prep them for a vital match with Aston Villa today.
“As I’ve said many times, you suffer defeats, you drop points in the run-in — Fulham was the best one."
“It’s how you handle it that matters and also making sure you don’t make that many mistakes it affects you."
"What it has done is to get rid of all that nonsense about us being untouchable and unbeatable. We’ve been done a favour now we can concentrate on playing football. Now have to kick on."
“It doesn’t matter how we get there. What matters is we are one point ahead with a game in hand, which is a great position for us to be in."
“What we have to do now is win our next games. The challenge is always there for this club but the important thing is for the players to focus on who they are, what they’re good at and we’ll be OK."
“With that ability and experience we have got in run-ins, we expect them to kick on. That’s what we intend to do. It doesn’t matter what happened in previous games.”
