Jamie Carragher is not expecting to see Manchester United win the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils will be looking to make a significant improvement in their Premier League form this term after they stuttered to a disappointing sixth-placed finish last term.

Jose Mourinho, however, still managed to steer Manchester United towards Champions League football thanks to their Europa League triumph last term.

Manchester United also won the EFL Cup in Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at Old Trafford last term.

The Red Devils have significantly strengthened their squad with the signings of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic so far this summer.

But Liverpool legend Carragher still doesn’t feel that Manchester United are ready to win the Premier League for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Carragher said: “I don’t think they will win the league, but they will have a real title challenge.

“I see the title being between Man City and Chelsea, personally.”

Manchester United are preparing to kick off their Premier League campaign with a home clash against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

The Red Devils were beaten 2-1 by Real Madrid in the Uefa Super Cup in Macedonia on Tuesday night as they missed out on the first trophy on offer to them this season.
