Gary Neville believes that building momentum, coupled with all their attacking talent, is how Manchester United could win the Premier League title this season.
United haven’t been the champions of England since Sir Alex Ferguson’s last season in charge in 2013 and the club are desperate to end that drought.
So far, so good, as United are on the same number of points as Chelsea and Liverpool at the top of the table, positioned third on goal difference, and remain undefeated.
They kept pace with their title rivals in a dramatic 2-1 win over West Ham on Sunday, in which they scored a late winner through Jesse Lingard and David de Gea saved an even later penalty to keep the lead.
Neville thinks United were fortunate in the game, whereas Chelsea completed dominated Tottenham in their 3-0 win, but the retired right-back explained how his former team will be able to beat the London side to the title.
“Manchester United were fortunate in the end but this is what they are – ‘the odd bunch’ that play in moments during games,” he told the Gary Neville podcast.
“United’s team performance was nothing like what we saw from Chelsea and that’s why I’ve been saying that the best team will win the league.
“If Manchester United go on and win this league, it’ll be through momentum and it’ll be through moments and it’ll be through having so many wonderful players in forward positions. But with Chelsea, the champions of Europe, they’re a better team when you watch them. Our eyes don’t lie.”
