Former Manchester United star Ray Wilkins has admitted he fears for the club this year, according to

Wilkins, who played for the Red Devils 160 times, is sceptical about his old team's chances of Premier League glory, and has instead backed Chelsea to win English football's biggest prize.

United have had an indifferent start to life under David Moyes, having endured a dismal transfer window which saw them miss out on a host of targets, before losing to Liverpool and drawing at home to Chelsea.

Wilkins does believe that things will come good eventually, but for this season at least, he remains unsure about United's chances of success.

"David Moyes will do an excellent job, but I fear for Manchester United this season," Wilkins said.

"Fellaini was a very good buy indeed but I think they needed more players, especially on the European front. Every side in the Champions League has reinforced, and United have to a degree, but not as well as I’d have liked to see them do."

Wilkins also believes that Chelsea, whom he also served both as a player and as coaching staff, have the jump on their Premier League rivals in the wake of Jose Mourinho's return.

"I think they’ve [Chelsea] got every chance."

"The return of Jose was a masterstroke. He and [Roman] Abramovich seem to have healed their rift and they have a squad who could go and win it.

"They look solid and look as though they have an abundance of players who can rip you apart. So I fancy them big time."
