Darren Fletcher has insisted that Manchester United are not consumed by thoughts of an unbeaten run.
Sir Alex Ferguson's men edged closer to the momentous achievement by battling back from two goals down to win against Blackpool on Tuesday.
United now stand one game away from levelling their famous 29-match unbeaten run that was the backbone of the team's treble-winning success in 1999.
However, Fletcher is adamant the class of 2011 will not let thoughts of remaining unbeaten distract them from taking the Premier League title.
"The unbeaten record is not being spoken about. Our main concern is winning the league," said the Scotland captain.
"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."
Tuesday night's result was reminiscent of many inspired comebacks instigated by Sir Alex Ferguson, with the three points gained putting United five clear at the top of the Premier League.
"We were desperate to get back out for the second half and try to put things right. The performance level had to come up and everyone responded," added Fletcher.
"It is definitely up there with the other comebacks. The manager made us believe we could still do it. He inspires us and gets us going.
"Hopefully we look back upon the Blackpool win as being an important moment in our season.
Fletcher was happy to single two of his team-mates for praise after the stunning second half comeback.
Half-time substitute Ryan Giggs changed the game after his arrival, while Dimitar Berbatov made no mistakes, firing home twice to notch up 20 goals for the season.
"Ryan is different class," added Fletcher.
"He wants the ball. He tries to make things happen and was a real inspiration when he came on. We tried to feed him the ball as much as we could."
"Dimitar is having a fantastic season and long may it continue.
"His confidence is really high and he probably feels as though he could score every time he gets the ball.
"He is putting himself into goalscoring areas, which is why his goal tally is rising so quickly.
"He is getting into areas that hurt teams. Strikers want to score fantastic goals but tap-ins are just as important."
