Former Chelsea ace Craig Burley believes Manchester United will miss out on the Premier League title this season. The Red Devils have made a quick start off the blocks with 19 points from seven matches, and they are only trailing Manchester City at the top on goal difference.
Speaking to ESPN, Burley feels the Red Devils have made a step forward with resounding wins over the weaker sides, but there is a still a gap between them and the Premier League crown, he said: “I think clearly United have made a step forward, the results would suggest it. Against weaker teams last year they gave up points, they weren’t as clinical, they weren’t as strong, as organised. But I’ve not got them to win the league. I don’t think they’ve taken a big enough one for me but I do think they’ve moved in the right direction.” (more…)
