Solskjaer rates Manchester United’s chances of winning the league after 2-0 victory over Manchester City

Manchester United ended Manchester City’s 21-game winning run with an impressive 2-0 victory at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

A second-minute penalty from Bruno Fernandes and a Luke Shaw strike saw Manchester United claim all three points to move back above Leicester and into second.

The victory over Manchester City also saw Manchester United cut the gap with the Premier League leaders to 11 points.

Despite cutting the gap to just 11 points, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has played down United’s title chances by insisting Manchester City are ‘too far ahead to think about catching them’.

“We just take one game at a time, of course they are too far ahead to think that we could catch them,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“Last year we caught 15 points on Leicester, but these are a different proposition.”
