Former Manchester United star Paul Scholes believes Manchester United can win the Premier League this season but only if they start winning big games.
Paul Scholes thinks anything is possible for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side in this ‘weird’ season but he feels results against the big teams will have to ‘change’ if they are going to go all the way.
Manchester United have failed to beat any of the ‘Big Six’ this season but still lead the Premier League table by three points heading into Sunday’s clash with defending champions Liverpool.
Scholes says there’s no time like the present for them win against the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and City.
‘It feels strange to say it, but I actually do think United can win the league because it’s been such a weird season,’ Scholes told ESPN. ‘But it’s all about winning the big games now.
“They haven’t done that yet. People can say they won at Leicester on the final day of last season to qualify for the Champions League, but that wasn’t a big game like going to City, Liverpool, or Chelsea and winning when it matters.
“United have lost four successive semifinals and were knocked out the Champions League with a really bad defeat against RB Leipzig.
“That failure to win big games has to change if they are to win anything, but there’s no better place to start than at Anfield.
Ole Gunnar’s side will look to extend their lead at the summit of the premier league table when they travel to Anfield to face Jurgen Klopp’s side on Sunday evening.
