Despite the club’s inconsistent start to the season and elimination from the UEFA Champions league, Manchester United can win the Premier League title this season, according to club manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
The Red Devils take on Manchester City at Old Trafford on Saturday – only days after they were eliminated from the Champions League by RB Leipzig in a disappointing 3-2 defeat.
This season United have endured a 6-1 loss to Tottenham and home defeats against Arsenal and Crystal Palace but can gi within two points of league leaders Tottenham if they manage to get the victory against Manchester City.
United have won their last four Premier League games, with three of those victories coming on the road after going behind, and Solskjaer feels his team can be title contenders.
“At Manchester United, you should always aim to win trophies,” Solskjaer said.
“Of course, with the last three seasons, as they have been, there’s been two teams far ahead of the rest of the pack.
“I got belief during the season, or since the turn of the new year, that this team is improving and that we can put up a challenge.
“Of course we need to improve on last season but I don’t think any team will run away with it.
“I go into every single game wanting to win, so maybe that’s the answer to your question. If you win every game you end up with a trophy.”
