Manchester United backed for Premier League title challenge

Former Tottenham midfielder Jamie O'Hara thinks that Manchester United can win the Premier League title this season. The Red Devils are currently 9th in the league table with 8 points behind league leaders Liverpool and are preparing to face Sheffield United in the midweek Premier League game on Thursday, December 17. However, Solskjaer's side have two games in hand and if they celebrate victories in those games, it will put them above Tottenham into second place. Spurs were leading the league table with the same amount of points as the Reds, however, after the 2-1 defeat on Wednesday, they are currently 2nd with 25 points. Following Liverpool's late 2-1 win over Tottenham on Wednesday, O'Hara told talkSPORT: "I'm telling you, if they win their games in hand over Tottenham they're second in the league, they'd be on 26 points. "So you can't get away from the fact that they're there or thereabouts. "You look at their form, it's win, win, win, draw - they're not getting beat. "So all this talk about Ole out, it needs to be put to bed because if they keep getting results, they're amongst it." source - Express / Join us on Telegram
