Although they admit it will still prove difficult, the general feeling amongst Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern is that they are much more equipped to a plot an assault on the Premier League title this time round.
After the ill-fated reign of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal’s first season in England wasn’t without its difficult patches but ultimately, the Dutchman managed to steer the Red Devils back into the Champions League at the first attempt with United fans largely happy with the direction in which the club is heading.
United have of course already signed one of the most talented young players in Europe in Memphis Depay with the club still chasing after some of the biggest names in the game in Sergio Ramos and Bastian Schweinsteiger among others.
Catching Chelsea will be no easy feat but with van Gaal now a year more experienced in English football than he was previously, not to mention players finally buying into his preferred system, the general feeling is that United will get far closer to the Blues come next season.
There is still some rebuilding work to be done with Red Devils fans growing impatient in the club’s pursuit of a new top class centre back while another central midfielder is also in high demand.
With that business ultimately sorting itself out as the next month or so goes by, we’ve taken this moment to list five ways in which Manchester United can beat Chelsea to the Premier League title next season.
