If Manchester United beat Liverpool on Sunday, they will be six points clear of the Reds on top of the table.
are again in the title race as they are 3 points clear at the top of the Premier League table before visiting Anfield tomorrow. It’s been 8 years since United last won the title but they haven’t even been up there to fight for the table.
, former Manchester United defender who won the league five times with the Red Devils claims Ole’s side has spent enough to be up there with the title contenders.
He told talkSPORT when asked if this is United’s best post-Ferguson side: “
Possibly, it’s hard to know.
“You look at the squad Mourinho had and the success he had by winning some trophies… but it’s definitely up there.
“And it should be, too, because they’ve obviously spent a lot of money, so it should be one of the best, to be honest.
“There’s competition for places. You look at the whole squad, I can’t remember what game it was a couple of weeks ago but I saw the bench and thought, ‘wow they’re really in a good place in terms of the health of the squad’.
“They’re in a strong position.
“If they get the win on Sunday, to be six points clear of Liverpool would be incredible considering how everything was maybe six weeks ago.
“But United have put a fantastic run together, they’re in a great vein of form and obviously Liverpool are missing those few defensive players and have hit a dip in form.
“Liverpool have been so consistent, they’ve been incredible, but other teams are having to rise to the challenge now and United are doing that right now.
“As Ole has said, there’s nothing given out in January, but they’re in a good position.”
