Jose Mourinho & Pep Guardiola laughing

Man United star claims they can catch Man City in the PL this season

Ambitious

One Manchester United star has claimed that his side are able to catch Manchester City in the Premier League despite a 13 point gap between them.

Pep Guardiola’s side have simply been head and shoulders above everyone this campaign and the whole league knows it.

Players such as Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero, Leroy Sane, Fernandinho and more have well and truly hit some of their best performances.

Manchester United are currently five points clear in second place but instead, they have had some disappointing performances.

Draws with Burnley and Southampton are the latest of those but did come at the end of 2017.

That has left them seemingly without a hope of catching their rivals before the end of the Premier League season.

Though, according to one Manchester United star, the Red Devils are still not out of the title race.

In fact, Antonio Valencia has claimed that Jose Mourinho’s side are still looking to catch up to their noisy neighbours.

“We lost a title when we were eight points ahead and there were only a few games left,” he explained.

“Now, we have a lot more games to play and we need to keep fighting, we need to keep going.

“The important thing is to get the three points, playing at home, playing well, and we will carry on with this mentality until the end of the season.”

“We have shown that we have the quality and conditions to fight until the end of the season.”

Christian Pulisic makes Manchester United admission

While we’re still some way off the end of the season and the transfer window, there have been some interesting admissions recently.

That is because Borussia Dortmund star Pulisic has made his own about Manchester United.

Safe to say, Man United fans will want to see this.
