Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera insists they're FAVOURITES for the title this season.
Last season, Jose Mourinho's side finished the league campaign in sixth place, a full 24 points behind champions Chelsea.
Now Herrera reckons they are ready to change that. He said: “If you're looking for a favourite for the title, then I would back United.
“The race will be very open and the key for me is to avoid defeats at home and to start the season with a run of victories to prove we are contenders.
“Just looking at statistics and at the squad, you can say that Manchester United is a candidate for the title – but we need to demonstrate it on the pitch."
