Former Manchester United striker, Dimitar Berbatov, confident that his old club are a dark horse for the title.
As it stands, United are eight points behind league leaders Liverpool but could move to second if they win their two games in hand.
Berbatov told Betfair: “Everyone connected to the club is, of course, disappointed with being knocked out of the Champions League but that’s in the past now and at the moment things are going well for United in the Premier League.
“If they win their other game in hand then they will move even further up the table and in my opinion, they are in a great position to attack the top and go for the title. They are lurking in the shadows at the moment. People aren’t really paying attention to them and aren’t really considering them as a title challengers.
“All the focus is on Liverpool and Spurs, but maybe there will be a few surprises along the way and United will fight for that top spot because it’s a tight race this year.
“They need to correct this habit of conceding a goal first because, when they come up against a really good team, it’s going to be difficult to turn the game around.
“United are doing really well so far in the league and I think they can be happy with how they’ve done so far. The big plus is their game-in-hand against Burnley. No offence to the Clarets but United should be taking three points there, which would be massive.”
