Gary Neville believes that Manchester United are capable of beating Manchester City to the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils have been in fine form so far this season in what is Jose Mourinho’s second campaign in charge at Old Trafford.

Manchester United have won six of their opening eight games to leave them second in the table and two points behind Manchester City heading into this weekend’s round of games.

The Red Devils have struggled to challenge for the Premier League title in recent seasons and they have not lifted the top-flight trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge in the 2012-13 campaign.

Former Manchester United defender Neville has been impressed by what he has seen from the Red Devils this season and believes that they have what it takes to win the title this term.

Neville told ESPN FC: “This season will be a big challenge to win the league, City are looking fantastic.

“But there’s something there that tells me they are capable of winning the league, and I’ve not seen that for the last three or four years. I’ve not seen a team capable of challenging, let alone winning it.

“What I’m seeing now is a team that’s consistent, a team that’s hard to beat, that defends well and has got goals in it, so it’s got all the credentials.”

Manchester United are currently preparing to return to Premier League action with a trip to Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon.

They are aiming to get back to winning ways after their goalless draw with Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.

Manchester United have also been held to a draw by Stoke this season.
