Manchester United Ready to Win the English League Title, Liverpool Must Be Careful – Former Manchester United Manager, Steve McClaren, witnessed the revival of The Red Devils – the nickname of Man United. He also believes that Man United can compete with Liverpool in the competition for the 2020-2021 Premier League trophy.
Man United is now in 3rd place with a collection of 26 points. Man United is one point behind Leicester City (2nd place) and five points from Liverpool (first place).
However, Man United still has one match saved, namely against Burnley. If you win the match against Burnley, Man United should be in second place with a collection of 29 points.
In addition to the point collection that is close to Liverpool, McClaren sees Man United's game as well as showing them as one of the opponents for the title. McClaren's response was based on Man United's performance against Everton in the English League Cup quarter-finals.
Man United performed well when they appeared at home to Everton, Goodison Park, Thursday 24 December 2020. This good performance resulted in a 2-0 victory over Everton to take a step into the semi-finals of the English League Cup. The victory made McClaren more confident in Man United.
“The way they play right now, the way they play spoils Everton for the first half hour. They have several players, they are getting fitter,” McClaren said, quoting from TalkSport, Saturday (26/12/2020).
“I heard Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (Man United coach) explain how their health has improved. That wasn't there at the start of the season," he said.
"But the quality of the players they have, they have a goalscorer in the team. They can win any game," said the former Man United manager.
"Man United are up there, trust me. They are definitely title contenders," he said.
The closest match for Man United is against Leicester at the King Power Stadium, Saturday (26/12/2020), evening WIB. The value of that game is important for the campaigns of the two teams in the Premier League this season.
Victory will bring Man United or Leicester to 2nd place. Therefore, it is predicted that the match will be tight because the two teams want to win to stick to the top of the standings for a while, Liverpool.
