Paul Pogba is convinced that Manchester United can win the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils have been in decent form so far this season and look as if they will be Manchester City’s closest challengers for the title.

However, the Citizens have been by far and away the Premier League’s top performing club this term, with Pep Guardiola’s men currently eight points clear at the top of the table and having only dropped two points this term.

Manchester United take on Manchester City in what promises to be a thrilling Manchester derby on 10 December at Old Trafford.

And Red Devils midfielder Pogba is certain that Manchester United can catch the Citizens in the race for the title.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Pogba said: “The season is very long, of course.

“If I don’t believe that, I’d stop playing.

“If I don’t believe we can still win the league, I better stop. I’ll leave my boots and stop playing football cause I’m a believer we keep fighting.”

Manchester United are aiming to win the Premier League for the first time this season since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the Premier League table last term but won the Europa League and League Cup in Jose Mourinho’s first campaign at the club.

They take on Basel in the Champions League on Wednesday night needing a point to book their place in the last 16 of Europe’s elite club competition.
