Manchester United will continue to fight for the Premier League title until it is mathematically impossible, says Antonio Valencia.

United are 13 points adrift of rivals Manchester City at the top of the table - with Pep Guardiola's side only losing once this season.

Jose Mourinho's side made ground up on their neighbours last weekend as they beat Huddersfield 2-0, while City drew with Burnley.

Valencia has pointed out the 2011-12 season when United gave up a eight point lead at the summit of the table before City pipped them in the final day of the campaign.
