EPL: They’re not in title race – Gary Neville names two teams fighting for trophy


Sky Sports pundit, Gary Neville, has insisted that Manchester United are not in the Premier League title race.

Neville was speaking after his former club defeated Leeds 2-0 on Sunday.

According to him, Erik ten Hag’s team selection showed he was not keen on fighting for the title, especially with the Red Devils facing Barcelona in the Europa League next week.

“I genuinely don’t think they are in the Premier League title race.

“I was thinking Erik ten Hag had actually prioritised the Barcelona game. He put Martinez and Varane on the bench and played Shaw and Maguire at centre-back.

“If he thought he could win the Premier League, he would obviously prioritise that. I think even he’s thinking the title is beyond them. They’ve got so many games and I just don’t think they’re at the level of Man City and Arsenal right now,” Neville said.

United now have 46 points and occupy third place behind Arsenal (51) and Manchester City (48).
