"I thought Chelsea were far ahead of us in the table, but everyone at United says we can catch them," the Argentinian, who signed from Sporting Lisbon for £16m over the summer, said.

"We will not give up hope. We'll first aim to overtake Manchester City, and it is a good challenge for us."


Rojo, 24, was also full of praise for United manager Louis van Gaal, saying he fills the team with confidence.

"Louis van Gaal is a coach who gives us a lot of confidence," he added. "You can tell he knows a lot about football.

"He always tries to advise us, and if he spots something about your game he'll tell you in private and show you videos about it."
