    Manchester United can still win the Premier League title this season, according to Gabriel Agbonlahor.

    United, currently fifth in the table, are just four points behind second-placed Newcastle with a game in hand, but have some way to go if they are to catch leaders Arsenal, who are 11 points clear of Erik ten Hag’s side.

    United are the only team to have beaten the Gunners this season, registering a 3-1 victory over Mikel Arteta’s team back in September and Dutch boss Ten Hag will be hopeful of picking up maximum points in their next two top-flight matches.

    His side next face Wolves – who are currently inside the relegation zone and are the lowest scorers in the league – and then a Bournemouth side who have picked up just one victory across their last seven top-flight games.

    Many have tipped United to finish in the top four this season after losing just one of their last eight in the league but when quizzed about their chances, Agbonlahor told talkSPORT: ‘I think they should be challenging higher than that.

    ‘I think Manchester United should be challenging for the [Premier League] title.

    ‘I look at that team when everyone is fit – you have David de Gea, Diogo Dalot has been in good form, you’ve got Raphael Varane and then Lisandro Martinez, who has just won a World Cup.

    ‘We all know what Varane has done in his career, a top defender when he is on it. Luke Shaw left-back. You’ve got a midfield of Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen. That’s creativity.

    ‘You’ve got Marcus Rashford and Antony who are top, top wingers. Antony’s got a lot to learn but he will get better. Then you’ve got Anthony Martial.

    ‘Those 11 players there should be comfortably in the top four. I’d take their best XI over Chelsea’s best XI.’
