Manchester United star believes club can win Premier League title

Manchester United defender Rafael believes that his club can win the Premier League title this season, Daily Star reports.

The Red Devils have managed to climb to fourth after a disastrous start which saw them win only one game in their first five, sitting eight points adrift of league leaders Chelsea.

Louis van Gaal’s men bounced back to win two games on the trot, and Brazilian defender Rafael reckons that United are still in with a shout for the title.

He said: “If we start to understand the way of playing, like we are doing, and when the results are positive, everything starts to run smoothly and for sure we have chances to win the title.

“We will have three difficult games – against West Brom away, after this we face Chelsea, the actual leader, and then Manchester City in their stadium. These games will be very important for us.

“Against West Brom we need to be very focused as they are showing good performances, then we face Chelsea at home and City.

“We need to think about these three games and if we win we will be close to the leader, probably in second place, so we need to be positive and try to win these three matches.”

This will be Rafael’s 7th season after joining United back in 2008.
