Andy Cole rates Manchester United’s title chances ahead of crunch Liverpool clash

Andy Cole doubts Manchester United can sustain a Premier League title challenge, despite heading into this weekend’s Liverpool clash on top of the table.

The former United striker suspects that Liverpool and Manchester City will prove too consistent come the end of the season, but thinks the progress Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are making has been ‘fantastic’.

United climbed above Liverpool to the top of the Premier League with a 1-0 win over Burnley on Tuesday night, with Paul Pogba’s volley moving them three points clear of Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Should United beat Liverpool on Sunday, they will move six points clear of the defending champions and will further increase belief they can go all the way.

But Cole remains sceptical about their chances of lifting the Premier League title.

‘I’ll be honest with you… can Manchester United go on and win the league this season" Probably not,’ he told TalkSport.

‘I think for Manchester United to be top of the Premier League, like Ole said is a fantastic achievement considering a couple of months ago where they were at.

‘Everyone was touting Ole’s job about saying he shouldn’t be the manager of Manchester United.

‘I think it speaks volumes for him how much he’s turned it around, how much the players have turned it around and the belief in each other, the confidence to be where they’re at now.
‘You look at the league and you look at teams like Manchester City who’ve not been doing particularly well until about two or three weeks ago.

‘If Manchester City win their games in hand they go a point behind Manchester United so they have players starting to come into form. I think we all appreciate the quality they have and that Liverpool have.

‘To close the gap in one season to finishing something like 40 points behind Liverpool or something like that, to close it to then win the title, that’s no mean feat. That’s going to take some consistency.

‘To win it this season it’s going to take some doing. I don’t think we have enough to go ahead and win it this season but it’s fantastic to see them in this position and obviously looking forward to next season as well, it could be a lot better.’
