- Pep Guardiola admits Manchester United are still contenders for the Premier League title
- The Red Devils are 14 points behind league leaders Liverpool and 11 behind Manchester City
- The Citizens will be taking on Everton in a midweek Premier League clash at Goodison Park
Pep Guardiola believes that Manchester United still stand a chance of winning the EPL title despite sitting fifth on the Premier League standings and 14 points behind league leaders Liverpool.
Speaking on Tuesday, February 5, ahead of his side's Wednesday clash against Everton, Guardiola reckoned that United are still in the race for the Premier League title.
The Spaniard alluded to United's impressive run since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, with the interim manager picking maximum points and drawing one since his arrival.
"United is making this run of victories every single week, they'll be there to fight for the Premier League," Guardiola was quoted saying.
Guardiola further tipped Tottenham Hotspurs and Chelsea to give them a run for their money as the league shapes up going forward.

United also dropped points against Burnley at Old Trafford after coming from 2-0 down to force a 2-2 draw.
The Red Devils are two points off the top four, with Chelsea cementing their place after their 5-0 win over Huddersfield last weekend.
