Scholes backs Manchester United to put pressure on Chelsea, Manchester City

London: Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes that his former club could still upset the pace setters Chelsea and Manchester City for the Premier League title, signaling that Louis van Gaal’s men could take advantage of both teams’ involvement in the Champions League.

Scholes said that if United win their next two games, he wouldn’t be surprised to see them go on a great run and put pressure on the top two, the Mirror reported.

He further said that he hoped United to take advantage of the upcoming free weeks on account of Champions League fixtures.

Currently United, who recently beat Newcastle 3-1 to take their unbeaten run to eight games, trail Chelsea by ten points and are placed at third spot in the league table.
