Paul Scholes has said that Manchester City will still emerge the Premier League title winners at the end of the season.
The former England midfielder also tipped his former club Manchester United to be ‘best of the rest’ in the Premier League this season and finish second to Manchester City.
While Arsenal are currently leading the race to win the trophy this season, Manchester City are breathing down their neck in the second position and one point adrift. Erik ten Hag’s United side are fifth, having taken 15 points from their opening eight league games.
United have won four games in a row prior to the international break. They lost 6-3 to Manchester City after the break but bounced back against Everton last weekend.
Manchester United are nine points behind Arsenal and eight behind City, although they can cut that gap if they win their game in hand.
Asked if United can be the ‘best of the rest’ this season behind Manchester City, Scholes said on BT Sport: “Yeah, I think they can; they’ve got the squad to do that.
“After those first two games, I was really concerned that United wouldn’t finish in the top six.
“But the way they’ve fought back, winning five of their last six games, they’ve given themselves a great chance. They do look like they could be the best of the rest.
“I think they’ve got the squad of players that means they could be.”
