Manchester United coach David Moyes says his team will never give up fighting for a UEFA Champions League place, despite falling 11 points behind fourth-place Liverpool on Wednesday. United drew 0-0 at home to Arsenal while Liverpool came from behind twice to beat Fulham 3-2 at Craven Cottage. Striker Robin van Persie missed a hat trick of chances at Old Trafford, including a bullet header in the second half that forced a magnificent save from Gunners keeper Wojciech Szczesny.

"All I can do, and I keep saying it, is we will try and win the next game and pick it up," said Moyes, whose team has taken just two points from its last three Premier League games. "If there is one club in history who have been great at winning games in the second half of the season and putting pressure on the teams above it is Manchester United.” He added: "We can only do our job the best we can. We want to play better. We cannot bother about other teams. We can only put pressure on by winning our games. I believe the desire is still there in the squad.”

In a separate report, ESPN points out that while Manchester United recorded record revenues for the fiscal second quarter, failure to qualify for next season’s Champions League would cost the club in excess of 40 million pounds ($66.5 million) and potentially as much as 70 million pounds ($116.4 million).

Meanwhile, Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger was satisfied with a point and a shutout. “Our team was highly focused not to concede, and that maybe restricted our game going forward a little bit because we were certainly hit by the five goals we conceded [against Liverpool] on Saturday, and you could feel that here," the Frenchman said, adding: "We have come out two difficult games and are still in a strong position, that is the only positive."
