Manchester United can’t win Premier League title says Neville
Gary Neville rules out a Manchester United title triumph this season
September 16th, 2014
A new-look Manchester United team heralded in a new era on Sunday when thrashing QPR 4-0, with Louis van Gaal declaring himself satisfied with the team’s performance after shaky start to the campaign.
Angel Di Maria played a starring role as many considered that United could still challenge for the Premier League title this term, although it’s not a view shared by Gary Neville who thinks it’s too early for his former club to be competing for the top honour in England.
The bookies were quick to slash United’s title odds after they beat Rangers, although Neville feels as though Chelsea and Manchester City will be the strongest teams this year and thinks that the Red Devils will concede too many goals to be contenders.
Neville said on Sky Sports : ‘I don’t think they can no.
‘I think Chelsea and (Manchester) City are going to be the two strongest teams.’
‘I think defensively, when they come up against the big sides, I think there will be a problem defensively in dealing with them.
‘I think they’re closer to the title than they were three weeks ago. In repsect of maybe next season or the season after, you can see some light at the end of the tunnel with the players that they’ve signed.
‘These are the games you expect United to win three or four-nil, historically. They did (by beating QPR) what they should be doing’.
