Brown says Man Utd can complete above Man City and win the league

Fri 11 December 2020 | 1:04

A former United favorite, Wes Brown has praised the Red Devils' chances of finishing before the Manchester derby and win the Premier League this season.

United

 

are in a strong place in the top flight going in the Christmas period, despite having flattered to deceive with a series of unbelievable displays.

A 3-1 victory away at West Ham last week centralized all that has been good and bad about the Red Devils in recent months, with a remarkable striking display in the second half ultimately making up for a terrible first-half showing.

That result perceived

United

to rise to sixth in the standings with a game in hand on all five teams above them, but a bitter Champions League loss at the hands of RB Leipzig on Tuesday collided them.

Brown

is assured that his old team can put aside Man City at the end of the season, and has also backed them to hush their critics by going on lift the Premier League trophy for the first time since 2012-13.

“The way the season has gone so far, I think Man United could finish above Man City. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still going to be tough, and there are probably six – not Arsenal – teams in there that’ll be fighting for the title,"

the former Red Devils defender told.

“I don’t see why United can’t finish above City and win the league, just based on how the season has gone so far.

“United came top four last season when nobody thought they would, so sometimes you have to give them credit where it’s due.

“More consistency in the Premier League is all I’d ask for – at home, especially. Put together a six or seven-game run at Old Trafford and I don’t think anyone can have any questions about whether or not you’re genuine title contenders.”

Consideration over Solskjaer's position at the Theatre of Dreams has been erupting in the wake of United's Champions League defeat, but

Brown

is still sure his ex-team-mate is the right man for the job.

“He’ll always get stick in the media, but he knows what he’s doing. He’s doing his thing, he’s getting the players playing the way he wants them to,"

he continued.

“He’s trying to build a really strong squad, because you need exactly that in this league with so many competitions you’re playing in.

“Ole gets a lot of criticism, but that’s Manchester United for you. If you do get beat, you’re going to get stick, and if you win, you’re going to get praise.

“Ole understands the club. He’s been a manager for a while now and he knows where he wants to put the club, back where it belongs. We all understand that doesn’t just happen overnight."
