Does anyone else want to tell him? Or, shall we?
According to Louis Saha, the former Manchester United player believes the club could still challenge for the Premier League title this season, stating that “there is time” for Erik ten Hag’s men to put together a solid campaign.
There is no denying that the Red Devils are looking a lot better than they were in the initial stages of the Dutchman’s reign, with many having acknowledged that the club finally appear as though they can win football games; even without Cristiano Ronaldo.
Indeed, if you were to check out the Revista page, then you would find that there are many different betting opportunities that are possible to place on the club, with fans able to find the best tips possible to ensure they make the right selections.
However, it would seem that Saha also has some of his own, with the former French forward suggesting that due to this year being unlike any other with the 2022 FIFA World Cup stuck in the middle of it, there is no reason why a push could not be achieved once the action returns.
He told GGRecon: “There is time for them to still challenge for the Premier League title this season. It’s a very special year because of the World Cup, and we know that there’s the prospect of a few players returning tired, but December and January have always been crucial months in title races gone by, so let’s see what happens.
“All teams competing are going to have to deal with this World Cup situation, but when you’re eight points behind at this stage in the season, then as long as you do well against the sides you’re competing with then the dynamic can change.
“Many people believe that Manchester United are competing for the top four only, but at the moment they need to remain very humble.
“They’ve shown positive signs against both Tottenham and Chelsea, but it’s not enough as you have to show a run of remaining unbeaten for maybe eight or nine games and keep up the pressure on the sides ahead of you and be ready to capitialise when those sides have got injuries or head into a spell of inconsistent form.”
Of course, if you take a look at the Premier League table, you would know that the Red Devils are already eight points adrift of Arsenal at the top of the table, although their recent form is something that should also be acknowledged.
Since losing the first two games of the season (Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford), Manchester United have managed to go on a run that has included winning six, drawing two, and losing just one, thus making the club look an entirely different prospect.
However, whether they can still challenge for the Premier League title does appear to be a little of a stretch, Louis…
