LONDON, December 22- Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata is confident the Red Devils will turn their fortunes around following a number of disappointing performances. 

After losing to VfL Wolfsburg 3-2 and having their Champions League dreams shattered, United suffered back-to-back Premier League losses to Bournemouth and Norwich.

However, while United’s dismal performances as of late have seen them fall to fifth on the Premier League standings, Mata remains optimistic that his side can turn things around.

“We are in a complicated situation and in order to get out of it we have to stick together and believe in ourselves so we can get a positive result as soon as possible,” Mata wrote on his blog.

“We all feel frustrated, the same as last week, and we need to win a game as quickly as possible because it will change our mood and give us confidence. I’m sure that we will turn this situation around. Our next chance to do it will be on Boxing Day at Stoke and that’s not an easy game.

“No matter how tough the situation can be, I’m not even thinking about giving up. That’s my attitude day after day, I try to give the maximum regardless of things going well or bad.

“I believe that’s the only way to get out of this bad streak – keep working hard and sooner or later we will get the results that we want.”

United will look to snap their three-game losing streak when they visit the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke City on Saturday.
