Manchester United will push Liverpool all the way in which on this season’s Premier League title race if they’ll preserve their present kind.
That’s the view of Sports activities Bar co-host Jason Cundy, who has been mightily impressed by United’s latest revival below Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – with the Pink Devils unbeaten of their final 9 home outings.
United lie simply two factors behind Jurgen Klopp’s males after Marcus Rashford’s late winner secured a dramatic 1-Zero victory towards Wolves on Tuesday evening.
And Cundy has issued a stern warning to the reigning champions heading into the New 12 months.
“Liverpool know they’ve not been firing on all cylinders,” he stated. “They’ve picked up an damage to Joel Matip as effectively – that’s one other damage to a centre-half [Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez also sidelined].
“So all three centre-halves are out. In the event you look again they have been cruising towards West Brom, however they didn’t put the sport to mattress [and ended up drawing].
“They dropped two very essential factors, so they need to be wanting over their shoulders. I feel they’ll win it as they’ve acquired an excessive amount of, however truthful play to Ole to get themselves [United] ready proper now.
“If United get their dwelling kind proper, they usually begin profitable video games convincingly at dwelling, then I feel Liverpool needs to be frightened.
Nevertheless, Trevor Sinclair has raised doubts over United’s title bid and believes they may fall off until they make attacking reinforcements within the January switch window.
“We’ve seen [Edinson] Cavani come off the bench towards Leicester on the Kingpower final weekend and we have been raving about him and saying how far more he brings to the desk than Anthony Martial,” the previous Manchester City, West Ham and England winger stated.
“However really final evening when Cavani began he was a bit of bit ineffective – he didn’t actually get into the sport.
“That’s one space the place Manchester United [need to improve]. I feel it’s apparent they want a striker.
“They want a No.9 who’s going to get you 25 objectives a season and actually at it day-after-day and each sport. I don’t assume they’ve acquired one proper now.
“I feel Cavani can play a bit half with good high quality, however Anthony Martial isn’t the one. With Rashford taking part in out on the left I feel that’s one space United must strengthen in the event that they need to be taken critically.”
