Harry Maguire names Man United’s biggest title rivals this season
Manchester United captain, Harry Maguire, has named Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool as the club’s biggest rivals for the Premier League title this season.
Maguire stated this ahead of Man United’s Premier League opener against Leeds United on Saturday.
Last season, Man United finished in the second position on the Premier League table behind champions Manchester City and ahead of Liverpool (third place) and Chelsea (fourth place).
“I think this season is going to be more competitive than ever,” Maguire told Sky Sports.
“We have strengthened and the other clubs around us have strengthened as well. There are a lot of great teams in this league.
“You have seen in the past that those fine margins can create a 10-point gap from where you were last season.
“Of course, Manchester City won the league last season and they are a top team. They have obviously signed Jack (Grealish), who I know really well, he is a top player, so they are going to be strong.
“Chelsea, Liverpool too – whoever puts good runs together and remains focused, but the most important thing for us is concentrating on ourselves.
“We have got to improve on last season, and we’ll aim to do that.”
