Thierry Henry’s response when asked if Man United can still win Premier League title

The Arsenal legend pours cold water on talk of Manchester United winning the Premier League title this season

Thierry Henry believes it will be very difficult for Manchester United to win the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils played out a frustrating goalless draw with promoted side Burnley at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon despite the home side registering a Premier League record 37 shots on goal.

The 20-time English champions have failed to win their last four Premier League games to leave the Red Devils in eighth place and eight points behind leaders Manchester City after 10 games.

Jose Mourinho’s side were initially talked up as one of the favourites for the Premier League crown after three successive wins against Bournemouth, Southampton and Hull City to start the 2016-17 season.

However, former Arsenal striker Henry played down Manchester United’s chances of winning the title for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.

Asked if Manchester United could still finish top of the table on Monday night, Henry told Sky Sports:

“It is very difficult for me now. You can never know what will happen in the Premier League. We’ve seen so much weird stuff in the past. They’ve played against difficult teams recently.”
