Stretching the gap at the top is more important
Manchester United midfielder Darren Fletcher insists there has been no mention of the history books as the club march towards another title.

United went a club record 29 games unbeaten during the 1999 treble winning season

After the Red Devils beat Blackpool 3-2 on Tuesday night in a pulsating encounter, they find themselves only one game off matching that feat, with Aston Villa the next to go up against Sir Alex Ferguson's red machine.

But for Fletcher and the rest of the players the most important stat is that United have stretched their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points with Arsenal leading the chasing pack.

"The unbeaten record is not being spoken about,” the Scotland captain told reporters.

"Our main concern is winning the league. Not losing for so long does give us great confidence but ultimately we are trying to win the Premier League – that is all we are focused on.

"If that means losing a game, so be it."
