He claims the other relegation-threatened sides "will not win all of their games" ... as though WE WILL!

Gareth Southgate: "We've got to keep on fighting. We've been in the situation we are for a good ten weeks or so.

"We've seen in the past that teams have been down and out, but one result changes the whole picture.

"If we can get a result against Manchester United then we can really turn things on their head.

"It is in our hands because other teams will not win all their other matches. We've got nothing to lose.

"I don't think anyone else in the country expects us to do it, except ourselves.

"Other results have been pretty kind to us over the weekend but we have to get the points ourselves. It doesn't matter what other teams do.

"When you look at the stats, it's clear. We haven't scored enough, that's plain and simple to see. But it doesn't matter what we've done in the past, we've got four games left to save ourselves."
