Manchester United legend, Gary Neville believes that his former club have only a slim chance of winning the Premier League title this season and that their hopes rest on the shoulders of French midfielder, Paul Pogba.
United maintained their place on top of the league table after playing out a goalless draw with Liverpool on Sunday, though many believed that the Red Devils had a good chance of winning the game after both Pogba and Bruno Fernandes missed their chances to score.
Neville believes that United were missing a little bit of inspiration on the night and has identified Pogba as the player who could offer them that.
Jamie Carragher slammed Gary Neville after the former Manchester United player claimed that his side were “not ready” to attack Liverpool during their 0-0 draw.
Paul Scholes has praised Paul Pogba for “cutting out all the flashy stuff” and concentrating on his performances for Manchester United.

“I think Manchester United’s chances of winning this league are slim – Liverpool and Man City are still the best two teams in this league. But the slim chance they have to win this league will depend on something like Paul Pogba delivering a cameo of two or three months of brilliance, which he is capable of,” he said to Sky Sports.
“He’s got confidence, he’s got arrogance – good arrogance, in a sense that he believes in himself. He thinks he should be playing in the biggest games in the world, and winning titles, and thinking positive thoughts, thinking you’re the best is a big thing when you’re looking to win.”
Pogba has been in good form off late for United and while he played well at Anfield on Sunday, he would have certainly wanted to score on the night.
