Phil Jones believes Manchester United can win Premier League title this season

Manchester United defender Phil Jones says they must ignore outside critics in order to win the title this season.

The Reds secured a 2-1 win over Leicester city last Friday night with goals coming from Pogba and Shaw respectively.

Jones isn’t ruling out Manchester United making a title push but insists they need to stop worrying about their rivals.

“Yes, of course [we want to win the Premier League],” Jones said.

“It’s the most difficult to win out of the competitions in England. The level of the players and their fitness and ability is improving.

“I remember when I joined [United] in 2011; the Premier League has come on leaps and bounds since then – the pace of the Premier League and the games we’re playing in are so quick nowadays.

“You have to adjust and adapt to that, but it’s great to be a part of.

“The top six look very good and are going to be very competitive, so it’s going to be tough for us again this season – we know that – but I think we just need to focus on us a bit more and concentrate on how we’re going to approach games and let’s see where it takes us.”
