One of the former Liverpool players, Danny Murphy believes that the hunt for the Premier League title in the 2020/21 season will involve his former club with Manchester United.
It cannot be denied, the Red Devils passed the first half of this season with a series of pretty good results.
Most recently, they managed to win over Aston Villa, where the victory made the Red Devils only within goal difference of the leaders, Liverpool.
With this fact, it means that Manchester United and Liverpool will be competing tightly in the second half of the season, competing with each other to become the best team in the Premier League at the end of the season.
Danny Murphy, who is a former Liverpool player, even admits that Manchester United at this time seems to have started to return to the track of winning competition.
“My natural instinct is not to wish well for Manchester United, but I have to appreciate that seeing them in the title mix, currently with Liverpool, is good for the game,”
“The competition between Liverpool and Manchester City has been captivating in recent years but nothing compares to seeing the two biggest clubs in the country – Liverpool and United – face each other,” Murphy told the Daily Mail.
Furthermore, Murphy considers the return of Manchester United to be very interesting considering the fact that the public had previously criticized the inconsistent performance of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team.
“United’s revival under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is an example that patience can be the best policy towards a manager. There were many times when Solskjaer was dropped or needed results to secure his job and he always found a way.”
“It’s a tribute to him and perhaps a lesson to the top brass that you sometimes have to give managers the right opportunities, especially when they’re trying to initiate long-term change.” he continued.
Indeed, before achieving a series of good results recently, Manchester United had had some inconsistent results. In fact, they were beaten several times at home.
However, it seems that the situation is now changing and the Red Devils’ performance looks more promising.
