Premier League Legend Explains Why Manchester United Can Still Win The Title

Premier League Legend Explains Why Manchester United Can Still Win The Title

"Silva is Manchester City's greatest ever player", Carragher told Sky Sports News.

Manchester City survived a scare to beat West Ham at the Etihad Stadium this afternoon, with David Silva the matchwinner.

Nevertheless, with an ever-excelling David de Gea guarded by a stern defence, City can expect a gruelling game - patience will be key and they may well have to rely on another late victor.

Guardiola's men will be looking to bring that record to an end and to set one themselves, as they try to equal Arsenal's tally for most consecutive wins in the Premier League should they be victorious on Sunday.

But Neville thinks today's game against West Ham will give Jose Mourinho hope ahead of next week's showdown at Old Trafford.

Table-toppers City are favourites to win the Premier League, which would be Sterling's first title - and England kick off in Russian Federation on June 18.




Such has been the dominance and power of Manchester United at Old Trafford, that it is quite startling to note that the 5/2 now on offer to win Sunday's huge game is the biggest price that any bookmaker has gone on a United victory at home in the Premier League since they were on offer at 12/5 (via Skybet) back in 2005, when they took on the record breaking Chelsea team who arrived at the Theatre of Dreams on the back of an unbeaten 40 match league run.

"There have been signs recently - away at Huddersfield and at home to Southampton in midweek - that teams are finding ways to stop them, despite Pep Guardiola's complaints at such tactics", he added. Yet, all eyes will surely now turn to next Sunday's clash at Old Trafford.

The home win over the Portuguese champions a fortnight ago was historic for the club as long-time goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev kept a clean sheet for the first time in 44 Champions League matches.

The likes of Sergio Agüero, who is now their all-time top goalscorer, Yaya Touré and Vincent Kompany have all played to an extremely high level for City, but Jamie Carragher believes there is one who is a level above them and another who could surpass them all.

Meanwhile Chelsea stand in the third position, 11 points below Manchester city and forth placed Liverpool are in a 14 points deficit.

"Right now all of our attention is on the game against CSKA Moscow - we would be making a big mistake otherwise".
