Gary Neville: Retaining title a ‘big ask’ for Man United
Gary Neville believes that Manchester United are all but out of the Premier League title race
Gary Neville believes that Manchester United are all but out of the Premier League title race.
The Red Devils currently find themselves eighth in the Premier League table and eight points behind leaders Liverpool after a stuttering start to life under David Moyes.
And former United defender Neville feels that the defending champions are unlikely to be able to claw their way up to first place before the season is out.
I think there are too many questions at this moment in time
“If there’s one team that has to falter you can put pressure on them but for four or five is a big ask and that’s assuming that United are going to go on a long unbeaten run themselves and that’s yet to be seen,” Neville told Sky Sports.
“I think there are too many questions at this moment in time. However, if they were to win the three games in the next week with Chelsea playing Liverpool, Liverpool playing City, Chelsea have played Arsenal, they’re all going to take points off each other so you could argue that they might be six or seven points off at the end of this period.”
