EPL: Ferguson backs Mourinho, rules out Chelsea

Sir Alex Ferguson has given his full backing to his former club, Man United to bounce back and be a title contender in this season’s campaign.

During a conversation with Kicker, the former Manchester United manager was quick to defend the Red Devils despite Jose Mourinho’s side falling six points off the pace in the early weeks of the season.

And the Scot believes they are one of five contenders for the title along with rivals Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham.

But he seemed to dismiss the chances of Chelsea, despite Antonio Conte’s side sitting fourth and one point behind leaders City having thrashed United 4-0 last time out.

“It’s harder to predict than it was for many years,” he said.

“I think there are five potential candidates: Manchester City as favourites, Tottenham and Liverpool, but also Man United are still there if we get some consistency soon.

“Even when you are trailing by six, eight points, it’s still possible to catch one or two teams. The rivalry and the experience of Guardiola and Mourinho makes for an exciting competition, and you shouldn’t forget Arsenal.”
