Manchester United must beat Tottenham on Monday to overcome the surprise loss to Brighton and keep pace with their Premier League rivals , says Frederico Rodrigues de Paula Santos ( Fred ) .
United crashed to a 3 – 2 defeat at Brighton last weekend to lose some early ground to defending champions Manchester City, as well as title contenders Liverpool , Tottenham and Chelsea .

“ We know Tottenham are a great team but we need to get the win if we are to aspire to win the league … it ’ s a very important game , ’’ Fred says .

Fred enjoyed a winning start at Old Trafford with a 2 – 1 victory over Leicester City but the 25 -year – old said Jose Mourinho’ s team were second best to Brighton in all departments .

“ The Premier League is a great league and there are a lot of great teams and Brighton were better than United , ’’ the former Shakhtar Donetsk player added .

“ Going into the next game , we want to be focused and we want to win so we can stay in the race for the title . ’’
