Manchester United can find “relief” from their stuttering domestic form by winning the Champions League this season, according to Louis Saha.

David Moyes’ Red Devils are currently eighth in the Premier League table and 10 points behind leaders Arsenal after a disappointing start to their title defence.

However, United have been in impressive form in Europe’s elite club competition, winning four and drawing two to top their group and set up a last-16 clash against Olympiakos.

And former Red Devils striker Saha is confident that Moyes’ men can go far in this season’s competition.

“Yes, they can win it,” Saha told Metro. “Moyes has to go as far as he can in the competition. The Champions League has been a relief from the Premier League for him.

“You can’t make mistakes in Europe but United are so strong every year from December to May so who knows?”
