Van der Sar predicts United recovery

18 April 2011 03:30
Edwin van der Sar insists Manchester United will have no trouble raising their spirits for Tuesday`s Barclays Premier League trip to Newcastle. Floored by Yaya Toure's winner for Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley on Saturday and with their Treble bid in tatters, United have had minimal time to recover. Their mood will have improved thanks to that dramatic finale at Arsenal on Sunday, where Liverpool scored a 102nd-minute penalty to deny the Gunners three points, that leaves them nursing a six-point lead at the top of the table with only six games remaining. "It won't be difficult to pick ourselves up," said Van der Saar. "We know how important the league is. We are in first position, so we just have to make the best of it. "We were a little bit tired (on Saturday). The pace of our game was not quick enough. "We have played a big number of games in the last three or four weeks and against Newcastle we must do better."
