Alan Hansen, pundit for the New Football Pools says Manchester United will be worthy Premier League winners, once this is confirmed.

“Manchester United are within a point of another title and although the race is never over until the medal is actually in your hand, it’s hard to see them throwing it away now. You can’t really argue with United winning the title the way they’ve performed over the season. They’ve played like champions; have a team that’s worked their socks off and a manager who has proven yet again to be the dominant force in English football.

To win three titles on the trot takes some doing and it will be the 2nd time Sir Alex has led United to do just that. This feat is even more impressive when you consider that three and a half years ago the team was on its knees and seriously struggling.

The hardest thing to do is to create new teams and over Sir Alex Ferguson’s 23-year reign at Old Trafford he has created three or four new winning teams. This team looks like it will be kept together and is packed with youth so the future looks very bright. One player that may soon be departing the club is Carlos Tevez but I’m sure Sir Alex wouldn’t want him to leave. He is a top quality player and his work-rate is simply phenomenal. He gives the team something extra and from he can definitely turn a game from the bench. Tevez is an excellent player and one thing’s for certain if he does go, there will be no shortage of clubs queuing up for his services.”
