I’m sure we’ll be in the top four by the end of season
The FA Cup takes over the fixture list next weekend and United are also due to meet Southampton in the EFL Cup final this month, meaning they won’t play a league game until the visit of Bournemouth on March 4.
And Blind believes the Old Trafford side can continue their surge up the table and secure Champions League football for next season.
“It will be close and we’ll need to focus and win our games but I’m sure we’ll be in the top four by the end of season,” he told MUTV.

“You want to play games as players. We’ve still got a lot to fight for, including a final, so we’re all looking forward to it.”
On the Watford win, Blind added: “We deserved to win and created many chances. We could have finished more of the chances; everyone wanted the ball.
“The second half was more difficult as they changed their system a bit but, overall, it was a good win.”
