Antonio Valencia has vowed that Manchester United will not give up hope of winning the Premier League title despite their sizeable gap to Manchester City.

The Red Devils slumped to a disappointing 2-1 loss to their bitter local rivals at Old Trafford last Sunday as they lost further ground in the race for the top-flight title.

Manchester United are Manchester City’s closest challengers at the moment but the Red Devils are still a long way behind Pep Guardiola’s men in the race for the title.

However, despite the 20-time English champions being so far behind the leaders, Valencia insists that Manchester United will not give up hope of winning the title until it is mathematically impossible.

Speaking to Sky Sports before Manchester United’s clash with Bournemouth, Valencia said: While ever there’s a chance mathematically, we just keep fighting.

“We know it is a big gap but I can think back to when Sir Alex Ferguson was manager and the gap was something like nine points and we ended up losing the title.

“So we know that it’s the Premier League, we know that everyone’s capable of beating everyone else and it’s just a case of keep fighting.”

Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge of the club back in 2013.

The Red Devils finished in sixth place in the table in Jose Mourinho’s first season at the club last term, but they managed to secure Champions League qualification by winning the Europa League, as well as the League Cup.

Manchester United take on West Brom on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.
