Frank Lampard believes that Manchester United will get stronger towards the end of the Premier League season and is backing the Red Devils to remain as one of the main contenders for the title.

The Red Devils have made a strong start to the new campaign under Jose Mourinho, but have suffered defeats by Huddersfield and Chelsea in recent weeks to dent their Premier League title hopes.

Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League title this season after the Red Devils finished sixth in the table last term in Mourinho’s first full campaign in charge.

Mourinho’s men were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend to dent their Premier League title hopes and leave them eight points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Portuguese coach is aiming to become the first manager to lead Manchester United to the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

And former Chelsea star Lampard feels that Manchester United will be one of the main challengers for the title come the end of the season.

Lampard is quoted as saying by the Daily Express: “I actually do think that Manchester United will be competitive towards the end of the season, so we’ll see.”

Manchester United return to Premier League action on Saturday with a home clash against Newcastle United at Old Trafford.
