Betting Tip: Manchester Utd @ 3/4 with williamhill

Wayne Rooney claims that Manchester United can challenge for the Premier League title next season, despite the fact that the Red Devils were some way off the pace last term.

Rooney said on his official website: “I honestly believe we will go far next year and won’t be far off challenging for the league.

“If you look at the first 10 to 11 games, we only had around 13 points and if you look at where we finished, I think it shows we could have been up there with a better start.

“We’ve dominated and outplayed most teams but haven’t taken our chances to win those games. It could have been a different story if we had.

“The most important thing is as a squad, including the manager and myself, we believe we are close to challenging for the title.

“With a couple of signings in the summer we will have a good chance of doing that. It would be good to win as many cups as possible.

“A club like Manchester United should be winning trophies and hopefully next season we can put that right.”

He added: “You have to realise that at the start of the season we had a new manager, new coaches and a lot of new players.

“It was always going to be a tough ask for us to win the Premier League. It was a bit disappointing not to win any silverware, especially the FA Cup after the defeat to Arsenal in the quarter-finals.

“We had a great chance of going on to win that. It would have been a disaster if we didn’t get that Champions League spot but the main thing is that the club is now back where it belongs.”

Memphis Depay has arrived at Old Trafford with more new faces expected in the coming weeks, including Sergio Ramos who looks ready to leave Real Madrid in search of a new challenge.

United slipped up in their opening game last season when Swansea came to town and walked away with a 2-1 victory, with Tottenham Hotspur the opponents on this occasion and it could be the match of the weekend.

Kevin Wimmer has arrived from Koln, with Kieran Trippier returning to the Premier League despite Burnley’s relegation and Mauricio Pochettino will be reshaping his squad as we approach the big kick-off.

This is a fixture that Spurs have won in two of the past three renewals, although the most recent meeting saw United three goals to the good by half-time and it remained 3-0 at the final whistle.

William Hill offer a best price 3/4 that United claim three points from this match, with Van Gaal looking to have a settled defence compared to last season where injuries forced him to constantly chop and change.
