Manchester United will struggle to win the EPL this season even with Bruno Fernandes at the club, Michael Owen has said. Owen recently revealed that the Red Devils are not yet as rounded as Liverpool and Manchester City.
According to him, MUFC is a brilliant counter-attacking team and will thrive against the big clubs, but they still find it hard to break down the smaller teams.
He added that the club might be in the mix for the EPL title, but they are still a step behind clubs like City and LFC.
His words, “I’m not sure they can win the title with him to be honest.
“I still think they’re… I think they’re a brilliant counter-attacking team, against the bigger and better teams they are exceptional and can give anyone a problem.
“The question I have is when they’re in possession against teams like Wolves and trying to break them down.”
“I watched them the other day [in a dogged 1-0 win over Wolves] and there were no chances. Listen, they’re right in the mix, no question about it.”
“They’re second on goal difference, but are they as rounded a team as Liverpool or Man City? I still think they’re a step behind and I still think it will be a struggle for them to win the title.
“But the way they’re playing, anything is possible.”
