Arsenal legend Martin Keown warned Manchester United are getting too carried away after winning the Carabao Cup on Sunday.
Erik ten Hag has won the first possible trophy available at Old Trafford after a 2-0 win against Newcastle at Wembley with goals from Casemiro and Marcus Rashford.
It continues the fine form shown by the Red Devils this season under the Dutchman in his debut campaign in charge while they remain in with a shout of winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Europa League.
That would see United win an unprecedented quadruple, though talkSPORT host Keown has played down the club’s achievements this season.
Speaking on White and Jordan, the Arsenal legend said: “A lot of people are raving about Manchester United, and the United fans are going to say ‘ah, typical Keown’, but let’s look at the League Cup and look at who they beat.
“So they beat Burnley at home, they beat Charlton at home, they beat Forest when they were way bottom of the table, not the best of teams.
“And now they are champions, they have won the Carabao Cup.
“So, Jim, people are now talking about quadruples. Let’s have a look at this in six weeks’ time.
“If they keep winning like they are, no doubt they can push for the title.
“I think those games are winnable, aren’t they? Against Burnley, Charlton and Forest. And then everything went exceptionally well for them yesterday [Sunday].
“They have turned things around, they have a manager who knows what he wants.
“He is sending good messages to the players, the culture is changing, [Marcus] Rashford is irresistible right now, the form he is in, they are a team that looks really together.
“There’s team spirit, leaders are forming, you can see the character in the side. But it is only one trophy, it’s only the League Cup.”
United’s brilliant form, having lost just once this calendar year, has urged fans to talk of a potential title race.
Arsenal are eight points ahead, which would be difficult to overcome, but the fact they are in the conversation only proves the wonderful job done by Ten Hag so far.
After conquering Barcelona in the Europa League, United are also one of the favourites to win the competition along with the Gunners and Juventus.
But their next match against West Ham is as important as they take them on in the FA Cup, which they will need to complete the quadruple.
United take on the Hammers on Wednesday night at Old Trafford before travelling to Anfield to face Liverpool in another crucial week for Ten Hag.
