Manchester United have drive and resilience of true winners

Greg Stobart of writes of why Manchester United is built to win the 2010-11 English Premier League title.

What separates the Red Devils from the two teams directly below them – Arsenal and Chelsea – is their winning mentality, their insatiable desire to win.

That was proved yet again as Javier Hernandez popped up with a priceless 84th minute winner that leaves United six points clear of the pack with just four games left to play.

It came just when hopes were being raised in north and west London that Everton could cling on for a draw they didn't deserve in the slightest for a performance that lacked any attacking ambition.

In similar circumstances, you can be quite sure that Arsenal would not have found a way to win the game; they have proved in the last week that they lack the necessary drive and resilience.

The same could be said for Chelsea given their woeful form for long periods of the season, but United have always found the drive and the skill to turn draws into victories, the hallmark of championship-winning teams.
