Gary Neville not optimistic about Manchester United’s title chances

Tottenham vs Manchester United Preview - Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in press conference

The English football pundit believes that United aren’t competitive enough to win the Premier League title.

Garry Neville believes that Manchester United have little chance of winning the Premier League title this season.

Despite spending heavily in the transfer window and bringing in marquee players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane, United have endured a fluctuating start to the new season.

Following the Carabao Cup exit against West Ham, United were stunned by Aston Villa at Old Trafford in the weekend’s league game.

Neville feels that the Red Devils lack team effort to challenge their fellow rivals for the Premier League title.

While talking to Sky Sports Podcast (h/t Metro), Neville said: “I said it even when they were winning, even when [Cristiano] Ronaldo scored, they don’t play well enough as a team to win this league in my view. They don’t play well enough as a team.

“I think you have to be a unit in and out of possession, and when you only deliver in moments, those moments won’t go for you in certain games.

“You need patterns of play, you need a way of playing, and at this moment in time I still see a group of individuals playing in moments, with some patterns and combinations at times, but still a team where some are pretty new together – Cristiano Ronaldo, Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho – but they’ve got to come together as a team and start to define a style of play. Then you start to get results when you don’t play well.’

United are currently fourth in the league table with 13 points, trailing leaders Liverpool by a point.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side will next face Villarreal in the Champions League group stage game on Wednesday.
