Man United can bounce back from adversity, according to Matic ...

Manchester United are capable of making a strong run against tough opponents in the coming weeks to ease the disappointment of Saturday's 4-2 Premier League defeat at Leicester City, according to midfielder Nemanja Matic.

United's winless league run was extended to three games, leaving them five points behind leaders Chelsea ahead of a tough fixture list, starting with Wednesday' UEFA Champions League clash with italy'S side Atalanta at Old Trafford.

United then host Liverpool and play Tottenham Hotspur away before the reverse fixture with Atalanta and the Manchester derby against champions City, with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under increasing pressure.

"Everyone is sad, everyone is with their head down at the moment," the Serbian told United's website ( on Sunday.

"It's time to work together, to analyse this game as soon as possible, and then think about the next game, which is in three or four days against a very good side, Atalanta.

Its also going to be a long day. We are very disappointed, but I believe that we will prove we are considerably better than this in the future.

Every next game is the most important, every next match is a new challenge, an opportunity to prove your abilities. Were going to take responsibility. Were going to step up and see what we can do. Im certain that we can accomplish a lot."

Matic apologised to United's fans for their poor display against Leicester.

"We are sorry for them. They support us, especially away, and they're top. They deserve much, much more than this."
