“Chelsea still better than Man Utd with Cristiano Ronaldo” – Pundit gives verdict

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy believes Cristiano Ronaldo isn’t enough to win Manchester United the Premier League title this season.

According to Murphy, Chelsea still have a better team that Manchester United.

Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “The last few seasons there have been many games where they have scored a lot of goals and looked very good from an attacking perspective. Their problem has come in the last couple of seasons, especially the last one, when they come up against the big five. They struggle to win games against the best opposition.

“Can they transfer that feel-good factor into the big games and pick a team that has the right balance to compete with Chelsea, Liverpool and Man City? I don’t think so. Even with Ronaldo there.

“Are they better than Chelsea? I don’t think so. Are they better than Man City and Liverpool? I don’t think so. I don’t think just Ronaldo gives the team balance. He’s a wonderful striker who will score a lot of goals, wonderful player. But the balance of that team, and squad, isn’t the same level as the teams I’ve just said.”
