It's Do Or Die For Manchester United

It's time for Manchester United to step up and respond, quickly. Or they could find themselves digging a hole they won't be able to climb out of.

With Liverpool convincingly beating Aston Villa 5-0, pulling themselves one point closer to Manchester United, the Red Devils have to be feeling the pressure.

All the Quintuple talk has gone to their heads even if they shoot down any claims that they are thinking about it.

It's natural. Who wouldn't think about making history but the possibility of it is getting the best of them.

They need to regroup and come together if they plan to raise the Premiere League title come May.

It's a MUST win game against Aston Villa to give themselves a little bit of much needed breathing room.

And hope that Fulham can carry the momentum they had against ManUtd into the Liverpool match and get a surprising upset to keep Liverpool at bay.

Because now is not the time to be complacent. When the squad returns from international duty, it'll be back to work and Sir Alex will be demanding a good result.

Aston Villa will still be carrying the sting from the loss against Liverpool and United need to pounce on their not so confident foes next Saturday.

There will be no Nemanja Vidic, no Rooney or Scholes. So what?

They shouldn't let the absence of the other players lower their confidence, they have the deepest squad in the league, and the much needed experience to deal with pressure.  

They need to dig deep and pull out the confidence and fight needed to get a result.

Because if they don't, this could spell DOOMSDAY for United and Happy Day for Liverpool and Chelsea.

United do not want to give them any satisfaction.
