Man United have dropped points against the likes of Stoke City, Burnley and Arsenal at Old Trafford in recent weeks and have fallen further down the table.
Jose Mourinho‘s side claimed a 4-0 Europa League victory over Feyenoord on Thursday and hopes are they can carry the momentum into the clash against West Ham on Sunday.
Speaking about the title race, Rojo insists a win on Sunday would put Man United in a good position ahead of the Christmas period.
“We’ve deserved to win our last few games at home because we were the better team, but we didn’t come away with the wins, which was disappointing,” he said.
“It’s an important game to keep ourselves in the hunt. Winning would put us in a good position heading towards the Christmas period, where games come thick and fast – things can change a lot during that time.
“It’s a very competitive league that changes constantly. We’re a bit of a distance away from the top but the team is in good shape and we’re playing well.”
It’s a big time for Man United, and with the pressure continuing to mount, Mourinho must walk away from the clash with nothing less than all three points.
West Ham have seriously struggled for form this campaign and United need to claim a win in the Premier League following their recent draws.
