Manchester United legend Owen Hargreaves has claimed the club’s league position of second is a ‘big improvement’ from where we have been in recent seasons despite our recent draw at West Brom.

The draw at the Hawthorns further dented our title hopes as we are now 7 points adrift league leaders Manchester City, who have a game in hand.

Former United midfielder Hargreaves feels our current position is still a step up, given we finished third last season and sixth the year before.

“Hugely disappointing [result] for United just because I think West Brom deserved at least a point from the game,” Hargreaves told Premier League Productions.

“You’d have thought United playing against a team in that position that they’d blow them away and they didn’t.

“Credit Sam Allardyce the way that he set them up they were a bit more positive.

“Diagne had a couple of chance in that second half where they probably could have even nicked the game I think for Solskjaer he’ll be disappointed that they didn’t win the game

“But they’re still up into second place which is a big improvement from where they’ve been in the past few years.”

“They [United] huffed and puffed, Mason Greenwood came on who I thought looked really good,” he added.

“United had chances but so did West Brom going the other way. I thought there was good chances in the game from both teams.”
