Manchester United’s league cup win on Sunday seems to have given the United community great hopes in the title race.
‘The king of sixth position’ are currently 15 points behind Chelsea and two of their former players are getting carried away just because of their EFL Cup triumph which they struggled to win against Southampton.
Quinton Fortune and his former teammate Ronny Johnsen were upbeat about the new-look United under Jose Mourinho on a visit to Singapore this week.
“One down, three to go [Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup],” Fortune told the Straits Times. “The league is still to play for. Chelsea are doing well this season, but it’s not over until it’s over.
“We’ll push them right until the end, with the Europa League and FA Cup still to play for.”
“They won the first trophy under Mourinho on Sunday, which is a very good sign,” said former Norwegian centre-back Johnsen. “You could see they are constantly improving their performances. They can even win on a bad day, which is another good sign.
“They have a chance to win more trophies this season. From now until the end of this season, it is so tight now in the Premier League to earn those Champions League places.
“But it looks very promising, I have to say. It’s a good mix between old and young players.”
