Former Manchester United defender Paul Parker has made a bold prediction for the club to win the Premier League this season.
Ahead of the weekend’s games, Parker said the Red Devils could claim the title when the season ends in May.
Manchester United started the season poorly, losing their first two matches against Brentford and Brighton.
But Erik ten Hag’s men have shown remarkable improvement in their recent matches and now sit fourth in the Premier League table.
Arsenal currently ranks first, five points ahead of Manchester City in second place, while Newcastle and Manchester United occupy third and fourth places, respectively, in the table.
“I think Man United have a chance of winning the Premier League already this season,” Parker told MyBettingSites.
“I still consider Arsenal as the favourites, but I’m not a big fan of Manchester City. They only have one top scorer in their squad and you need more.”
“So, there is a chance for Man United this season, but if they don’t win it, I will definitely put them among the favorites to win the title next season.”
