BT Sport Pundit Robbie Savage feels Manchester United will go all the way to lift the Premier League title this season due to the strength in depth in the Red Devils squad.
Jose Mourinho brought in the likes of Victor Lindelof, Romelu Lukaku and Nemanja Matic during this summer’s transfer window for a combined sum of over £140m.
While Lindelof has yet to take the playing field in the Premier League, Matic and Lukaku have already made a huge impression among the fans with convincing performances in the first three games of the campaign. The Red Devils clinched comfortable 4-0 wins over West Ham United and Swansea City until last weekend, and this has been followed with a domination 2-0 triumph over Leicester City on Saturday afternoon.
Pundits from across the United Kingdom have tipped Manchester City as strong favourites for the Premier League title, but Savage reckons Mourinho has options for any situation and can guide his side to league success in his second season in-charge, he said: “The options, especially looking at (Marouane) Fellaini. If they’re struggling in games they can put Fellaini up top for the long ball, diagonals. Zlatan Ibrahimovic now who has signed. The difference in options now, off the bench, on the field. That’s why I think they’re favourites to win the league.”
As a result of a third straight victory, United will finish the international break at the top of the league table whilst holding a vast goal difference of 10. They have also kept three clean sheets during the period which is a trend they have followed from their previous campaign where they held the second best defensive record after Tottenham Hotspur. Zlatan Ibrahimovic rejoined the Red Devils earlier this week but Mourinho has confirmed that the big Swede won’t be available until the turn of the year as he recovers from his long-term knee injury.
