Tue 08 December 2020 | 17:08

Gary Neville claims that Manchester United have placed themselves in the Premier League title mix, but the Red Devils star doesn't want to create a challenge for the crown.

They are only five points behind the pace being set by Tottenham and Liverpool and still have a game in hand unlike the other teams above due to the delayed start to their 2020-21 campaign.

United

have had five successive comeback victories, which make

United

competitive.

A change of outcome at Old Trafford could make them serious competitors for the final award, eight years after Sir Alex Ferguson toasted the last of his 13 successes.

The

United

legend,

Gary Neville

discussed an intriguing tussle for domestic supremacy: 

I think he’s [Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho] got a chance because there’s no doubt Liverpool and Manchester City are not where they were.

"

Losing [Virgil] Van Dijk, I think Liverpool win this league at a canter if Van Dijk is fit. I really do, nobody can get near them.

"

I still think Liverpool will win the league but there are little things going against them that haven’t in the last couple of years. The same for Manchester City and that makes it interesting.

"

Chelsea and Tottenham are looking at them thinking, ‘Hmm, they’re not right and we’re okay here, we’re just starting to hit form, we’re building spirit, we’re getting closer to them’ and I think that is giving confidence to them.

"

Even Manchester United - Manchester United players will be sat there thinking ‘We could have a chance if we play like we could’, as daft as that sounds because I don’t think they will win the league.

"

That’s what this season is doing to us because the top two [Liverpool and City] have set a bar that we’ve never seen before and now we are starting to see something more normal.

United

’s focused on Champions League task as they are trying to get the positive result at RB Leipzig that will make their way into the last 16.
