Manchester United’s former striker doesn’t think that they are ready to win the league.

Manchester United’s

former star thinks that they can’t compete with Liverpool or Manchester City despite the good performance of their star

Bruno Fernandes

but they are among the elites of the season.

Owen

told Premier League Productions when asked if an in-form Fernandes makes Solskjaer’s side serious contenders:

“I’m not sure they can win the title with him to be honest.

“I still think they’re… I think they’re a brilliant counter-attacking team, against the bigger and better teams they are exceptional and can give anyone a problem.

“The question I have is when they’re in possession against teams like Wolves and trying to break them down.

“I watched them the other day [in a dogged 1-0 win over Wolves] and there were no chances. Listen, they’re right in the mix, no question about it.

“They’re second on goal difference, but are they as rounded a team as Liverpool or Man City? I still think they’re a step behind and I still think it will be a struggle for them to win the title.

“But the way they’re playing, anything is possible.”

Manchester United stands in the second place and many pundits would suggest them as one of the title contenders despite their former star’s opinion.
