Schmeichel predicts United title win

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel is adamant his former side will overhaul Manchester City in the Premier League title race.

The Dane made close to 400 appearances for Untied during a sterling eight year career at Old Trafford, installing himself as a fan favourite during his tenure at the club.

Having won the league title five times with United in that time, Schmeichel is therefore confident Sir Alex Ferguson's men can topple rivals City on their way to claiming a 13th Premier League title.

“The players, the staff, the fans... they all know what this stage of the season is like,” he told

“This is the point of the season where history and tradition excels. This is when that really counts.”

“It’s been an odd season,” Schmeichel said. “United beat Arsenal 8-2 and then lost 3-2 to Blackburn, who then went and lost 7-1 to Arsenal a few weeks later. You don’t know what’s going to happen next.

“What you need to understand, though, is that you can have bad results in March and April and still win the league.

Players at United know that losing one game won’t lose you the title. They know that’s no reason to panic.”

United flexed their title muscle last week, striking late to down Norwich City, a potentially crucial three points in the context of the title race, with 12 games still remaining.

The champions travel to Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, hoping to keep the pressure on leaders City, who have held the lead at the top of the Premier League since victory over United in October.
