Former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has said he believes there are still six teams who could win the Premier League title, according to Sky Sports.
The 72-year-old has admitted that United’s rivals, Manchester City, look strongest to claim the title as it stands but predicts an exciting finish to the season.
“This year for the first time it really looks as if five or six could be involved, so it’s a great Premier League,” said the Scot.
“It’s still not an easy league to win. I think the English game is the most honest and is the hardest league to win in terms of the competition you face. You can lose to anyone.
“You have to say Manchester City are playing so well, there is no dispute about that, but the teams at the top at the minute must have a big chance.”
The top three teams are currently separated by a point each with Arsenal leading the way.
Ferguson lead Manchester United for 26 years but under new boss David Moyes the Red Devils currently sit in seventh place, 14 points off the top.
“Arsenal must have a big chance. Everyone keeps writing them off, saying they won’t last, but we’re into the second half of the season and they are still there. Then you’ve got Chelsea, Everton, Tottenham, who are starting to do well.
“United always do well in the second half of the season, so we’ve got a fantastic league and we should be proud of that,” he added.
