Darren Fletcher believes Manchester United must start dominating games if they are to be successful this season.
With a key game against Chelsea on Sunday fast approaching, the Scottish midfielder believes his United team must start to finish teams off to guarantee three points.
A Wayne Rooney penalty miss set up a nervous finish on Monday, with the Reds holding on to a slender 1-0 lead over Arsenal at Old Trafford to take them back to the top of the table.
Fletcher believes that United should be looking to go on and finish games off, calling for a return to the ruthless domination witnessed during November's 7-1 destruction of Blackburn Rovers.
"We need to be seeing teams off," Fletcher told the Daily Star.
"There are times when we have played well and ended up drawing.
"We might have played fantastic for 85 minutes but lost the victory because of two late goals.
"Some games have seen us show character and fight back for draws against the likes of Bolton and Aston Villa, so in that respect, it has been stop-start."
