Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Manchester United

Arsene Wenger doubts whether Manchester United are “mature enough” to compete for the Premier League title.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has taken a scalpel to the United squad he inherited from Jose Mourinho, selling or banishing numerous under-performing older players and signing three young, British stars.

Daniel James, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire have arguably been the club’s three best players of the season so far, leading the way for a youthful side.

United have named the youngest starting XIs on average this campaign, but even former Arsenal boss Wenger fears it might be a little too much.

“When you see Man United they are one of the examples where there is a potential there,” he told beIN SPORTS.

“But they have not found a collective way. Maybe these players are not mature enough to carry the team play of a team like Man United all together.

“That’s the big question mark now. You feel there is something coming out but it’s not ready.

“That’s why I say when you watch them play they are not candidates to fight for the championship.

“Will they emulate what Giggs, Scholes, Beckham did over a number of years? Personally I’m not convinced.”
