Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand has said he is not rushing into talks that the Red Devils could come out of nowhere to win the Premier League title this season.
The Englishman said he is keeping calm and watching what happens in the next two weeks before title talks are revived.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013.
But Erik ten Hag has steered the team into the top four as they now trail Manchester City, who beat them 2-1 at Old Trafford on Saturday, by a point.
Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford launched the Red Devils to victory and Ferdinand wants to see more from the squad before they are classified as title contenders.
“I am staying calm and forward looking,” he said when asked if he thought United could challenge Arsenal and Man City for the title.
“Champions League football looks more positive for next season.
“Let’s see where the next couple of weeks take us and maybe then we can revisit the recent title.”
