Ander Herrera: Manchester United now FAVOURITES for title

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."
