Charlie Nicholas predicts where Man United will finish in title race
The Arsenal legend doesn't expect Manchester United to win the Premier League title this season
Charlie Nicholas has ruled out Manchester United winning the Premier League title this season.
The Red Devils were 4-2 winners against Watford at Vicarage Road mid-week to extend their winning run to three games in the Premier League.
Manchester United have beaten Newcastle United, Brighton and Hove Albion and Watford in their last three outings to maintain their eight-point deficit.
The 20-time English champions are looking to win their first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013 but Manchester City have barely put a foot wrong.
The Citizens have earned 37 points from a possible 39 after Everton secured a 1-1 draw at The Etihad in their second Premier League game of the current campaign.
Former Arsenal midfielder Nicholas believes Manchester United aren’t going to be able to challenge Manchester City in the title race for much longer.
“I don’t think there’s much in it for the Champions League places. People are talking about a two-horse race but I don’t really see United in with a chance. They simply have to beat City in the huge Super Sunday coming up,” Nicholas told Sky Sports.
Manchester United will host Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering Manchester City side at Old Trafford on Sunday 12 December.
