Man United lack the belief to win the title, says Agbonlahor

Man United do not look like a team that are “hungry to win games or the title” according to former Aston Villa forward Gabriel Agbonlahor.

The Red Devils went 13 games unbeaten in the Premier League after their loss to Arsenal in November. This saw them overtake Liverpool to sit top of the table.

They have stuttered in their last couple of games, though. Their unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of Sheffield United last Wednesday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were well off the pace as the Blades beat them 2-1 at Old Trafford. They followed this up with a disappointing 0-0 draw with Arsenal on Saturday at the Emirates.

Man United are now second and they are three points behind Man City. But Pep Guardiola’s side have played a game less.

United hope to return to winning ways on Tuesday night as they host Southampton. Agbonlahor told talkSPORT, as cited by The Express, that he cannot see them winning the title this season:

“A lot of teams have been dropping points this season, and that’s why it’s been a crazy season and anyone can win the title.

“You look at Man United’s players and they should be looking to be in the top four positions.

“But going off their performance [against Arsenal] and their performance against Sheffield United, you can’t see this Manchester United team winning the title.

“Against Arsenal, they didn’t look like a team that was hungry to win games or win the title.

“If that was Manchester City they would have found a way to win because they want to win the title.

“They believe they can, Liverpool believe they still can – but this Manchester United team looks like they will take top four. They are not really looking to win the title.”
