Former Manchester United stalwart Bryan Robson believes his former club are more than capable of winning the Premier League title for a second consecutive season.
56-year-old Robson, who represented the club for 13 years between 1981-94, recognises the increased threat now posed by their city rivals and Jose Mourinho's Chelsea but, nevertheless, believes David Moyes' squad have what it takes to resist the formidable competition and finish on top once again.
He told Inside United magazine: "It’s going to be a really interesting season because of the changes at United, Chelsea and City. Arsenal keep saying they have £100m to spend on players but it’s not as easy as that. Which players do you buy? Then you wonder how Liverpool and Spurs might improve – they’re decent sides and will be challenging for European places.
"I still think we’re the team to beat and if City or Chelsea finish above us, they’ll win the title. That’s pleasing for me.
"I think we’ll win it. I know a lot of fans are concerned because Sir Alex has left but David Moyes is a really good manager and will get the best out of his players. With the squad we have, there’s no reason why we can’t go on and win it again."
United, who have enjoyed a successful start to the campaign with a Community Shield triumph over Wigan Athletic and a scintillating 4-1 victory over Swansea City on the first day of the new Premier League season, travel to Stamford Bridge on Monday night for a keenly anticipated fixture against their title rivals.
