Manchester United players told ‘they can now dream’ of that Premier League title
Manchester United and their supporters have no reason not to believe that they can win the Premier League, assures Gary Neville,
In a notably open Premier League campaign marked by wildly fluctuating form and results, Solskjaer’s oft-maligned side have emerged as genuine contenders, having now gone 11 games unbeaten in the top-flight.
They now sit top of the Premier League after a 1-0 victory over Burnely, and Neville has admitted that he has been blindsided by their run to the top over the past few months – but says they have no reason not to dream big.
“I don’t think anyone is saying Manchester United will win the league but the fact that they are in a title fight…wow. I never would have imagined it,” the ex-England man told Sky Sports.
“It’s a strange season. Why shouldn’t Manchester United fans believe? Why shouldn’t this side believe? Look at the front three, look at that midfield four, look at Bruno Fernandes – they have some fantastic players.
“The other teams aren’t in great form. Man City are sitting there cool and calm, nobody is really talking about them, but they are hitting very good form and that is a real danger. But in the next few days it is time to have a little bit of fun. It won’t be a comfortable few days for Liverpool.
“l believe these players feel they can have a really special season. It’s odd, it’s changing every single week, you don’t know what is going to happen and there’s an element of unpredictability and Manchester United could exploit that.”
This United side have a great opportunity to win back that Premier League, but Liverpool will be tough and Manchester City are coming fast, it will be a battle, but they can dream
