Man United can beat Chelsea to the title, insists Phil Neville

The former Manchester United defender believes that the Red Devils could win the title this season

Phil Neville is convinced that Manchester United have what it takes to win the Premier League title this season.

The Red Devils notched up their sixth straight win on Sunday thanks to an impressive 3-0 victory over rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford.

United are third in the table but still eight points behind leaders Chelsea heading into the hectic festive period.

However, the former United defender feels that Louis van Gaal’s side are potential contenders for the top-flight crown.

“Yes they can,” Neville told BBC Radio 5 live. “The players believe that they can win the title and so does Louis van Gaal.

“It was at the end of the game, when they celebrated with the supporters,” he said. “Van Gaal went down there, Ryan Giggs went down there, the goalkeeping coach went down there.

“All of a sudden, you’ve got that spirit – that indomitable spirit.

“I’ve won championships, and spirit can take you – sometimes – that far. At the moment, they’ve got the momentum and you just never know.”
