Can Manchester United Win the Premier League This Season

For the first time in over 8 years, Manchester United are leading the English Premier League with Liverpool FC in second place.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s team have come from nowhere to lead the pack having started off the season with them beaten twice in their opening three matches, losing 3-1 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in their first game before getting thrashed 6-1 by Spurs in the same stadium to pile the pressure on the manager.

Many fans were asking for a replacement during this period of the season and also when the team was eliminated from the group stages of the UEFA Champions League.

The last time that United led the Premier League table at this stage of the season, was in 2012-13 and they were crowned champions.

Whilst many pundits are stating that Liverpool FC will battle through and eventually go to win the league. Many point to the fact that the team are not performing against the big teams and relying too much on Bruno Fernandes to win the games. With some big games ahead, everything is to play for with other teams including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City and Leicester City also in with a chance to win.

Paul Pogba told SkySports that “We have improved a lot, we keep improving but we still have a very young team, obviously we cannot say now we are at the same level as them because they won the Premier League and keep winning. So the day we win, that is when we say we are at the same level.

“If you want to be the best, you have to beat the best. We want to beat the Premier League winners. We know how good they have been playing over the last few years – we know their quality and how they play. It’s always been a tough game.

We know how difficult it will be and we just have to focus and try to stay at the top. I think we can win it if we keep our focus but there’s a lot of teams that can win it – we are not there yet, we are still very far.”

Regardless of whether Manchester United can maintain the form and win the league or not, there has been great progress made over the last 12 month.

The return of Premier League fans has been on hold for the past 11 months during the worldwide pandemic. With this both fans and even professional footballers are using websites such as to pass time and potentially win big.

Biggest Rivals To Manchester United

The following teams are challenging Manchester United to the Premier League this season. From Liverpool to Leicester City, the competition this season is unlike anything we have had previously. In recent seasons, the top 2 or three teams had already established a gap in both levels and points in the league. This season experts, pundits and even betting companies have  them split by the finest of margins.

Liverpool F.C.

Currently in 2nd position and the reigning champions is Liverpool Football club. They won the league convincingly last season and even without the world’s best defender Virgil Van Dijk they will be sure to mount a real challenge. With players such as Mane, Firmino and Salah, Liverpool FC have the ability to score goals against any team. Will they be the biggest threat to Manchester United come May?

Manchester City

In what started as a slow start for the blue half of Manchester, the team is now starting to find rhythm which many have noticed. The ability of the players on the team is unlike any in the league, Sterling, KDB, Aguero and co play amazing and ruthless football at times. If the team can continue the current form they have then they surely be there of there about at the end of the season.

Tottenham Hotspur

Spurs fans around the country are looking at this season as a perfect time to mount a challenge for the title. With Harry Kane and Son leading the attack then they have the firepower to be serious contenders. Whilst the team has yet to win a trophy in many years, this season feels different for many reasons. With Jose Mourinho in charge, the team have been getting better results as the weeks go past.

Leicester City

Another team that could potentially lift the Premier League in May, is Brendan Rodgers and The Foxes of Leicester City. The team have been in solid form throughout the campaign and have got results against the rivals at the top. In third position just behind Liverpool FC, Leicester City surely have a good chance to defy the odds and win the league. James Maddison and Jamie Vardy are in scintillating form and look like scoring against any team.

The English Premier League has 5 or 6 teams that can win the title this season, making it the best league in the world. All is to play for and with fixtures coming fast it is a great time to be watching the games.

With the halfway point of the season about to arrive, the gap between Manchester United in first and West Ham in ninth place is just eight points. There are many key games this month coming up with several teams having to play each other in what is classed as 6 point games.

Even though we have covered all the basis of who can win the league, we must not forget another team from Liverpool that could surprise everybody, Everton FC. Whilst winning the league will be a difficult task, if Richarlison, James and Calvert-Lewin regain their form then they will have the firepower to make a title bid. With the Italian Ancelotti in charge then they have the management and tactics to compete with the best, whether they can sustain this for the rest of the season we will wait to see.
