Pat Nevin is still tipping Manchester United to win the Premier League title despite Manchester CIty’s impressive start to the season.

The Red Devils were dominant in the opening weeks of the 2017-18 season after successive 4-0 victories over West Ham United and Swansea City.

Pep Guardiola’s side laid down a marker with a resounding 5-0 win over title rivals Liverpool in the Premier League earlier this month.

The Citizens backed up that performance with a 6-0 thrashing of Watford at Vicarage Road as Sergio Aguero netted a hat-trick.

Manchester United responded with a 4-0 win against Everton thanks to goals from Antonio Valencia, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Romelu Lukaku and Anthony Martial.

The Red Devils are level on points with Manchester City having scored the same number of goals as their derby rivals ahead of the sixth weekend of the Premier League.

And former Chelsea winger Nevin expects Manchester United to win the title despite the Citizens’ free-scoring form.

“For all my waxing lyrical about Man City, I’ve still not changed my mind,” Nevin told Irish radio station Newstalk.

“I still think Man United will win the league. They’re not the best team but they know how to win. Man City will overdo it one day and that’s what Man United will be waiting for.”

The Citizens finished in third place in the Premier League table in their first season under Pep Guardiola.

Manchester United ended up in sixth spot but still qualified for the Champions League after winning the Europa League.
