Nemanja Vidic feels that Manchester United have left themselves with too much to do in the race for the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils are currently in sixth place in the Premier League table in the wake of their 1-1 draw with Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

That result left Jose Mourinho’s men 12 points behind leaders Chelsea and with some considerable work left to do if they are to claw themselves back into contention for the title.

And former Manchester United defender Vidic feels that the Red Devils are now out of the race for the top-flight crown.

Speaking in an interview with ESPN FC, Vidic said: “Realistically we are out of the title race. That’s my opinion.

“But, in recent weeks, the way we have played is encouraging.

“If we keep playing like that then the top three is our target.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League clash against Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.
