Tom Cleverley: Knows the Premier League title race is open

Tom Cleverley: Knows the Premier League title race is open

United's 1-0 win over the Gunners has moved them to within five points of the Premier League summit.

More importantly, it has condensed the table considerably, with only six points covering the top eight.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City all dropped points over the weekend, with Southampton now sitting third to add an even more surreal air to the state of the league at present.

And for United, who have taken so much grief for their disappointing start to David Moyes' reign, it just heightened the need to win.

"Seeing the weekend's results, we knew it was an extra important three points," said Cleverley.

"We didn't want the league leaders to go 11 points ahead of us.

"Now we are back in the mix.

"We are ahead of City and not far behind Chelsea.

"We have also played some very tough games out of our opening 11.

"I am sure now we can get a run together and get right up to the top again."

Given the massive amount of upheaval in the top flight this season, perhaps it is no surprise the shocks have been plentiful.

Cleverley certainly thinks so.

"It is what everyone predicted at the start of the season," he said.

"Everyone is improving and that makes for a really competitive campaign as a whole."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
