Manchester United are currently eight points behind Premier League leaders Tottenham.

Manchester United have the squad capable of forging a Premier League title challenge this season, according to Arsenal legend Ian Wright. United are 12th in the table, having picked up 13 points from their opening eight games of the campaign. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have been in fine form away from Old Trafford and head to in-form Southampton on Sunday (2pm).

United have not won the Premier League since the retirement of legendary former manager Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.

Reigning champions Liverpool, Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Leicester are all ahead of the Red Devils in the odds for this season's title.

But Wright says there is no way Solskjaer's team should be ruled out of an open race for top spot.

"I feel all those teams, Chelsea, Tottenham especially, Man United if they can get on a run, get it really going," Wright said on the Kelly & Wrighty Show.

"Everybody should be in and around trying to go for this, they should be.

"The thing about it is, the reason why I'd say it with Man United is what they should be doing with the squad they have got, honestly.

"You cannot write off a club like Man United with the players that they've got."

United have won their last three matches in all competitions and sit top of their Champions League group.

And ahead of the trip to St Mary's, Solskjaer insists it is important they put together a run in the Premier League.

“Of course, we want that run to continue," the Norwegian said.

"We know how well Southampton have done recently, or lately, in the last year or so.

"Still, we have a very good away record and I think we are up there as well since the turn of January when we had some ins and outs, transfers, I think that was a big turning point for us.

"Since then, we've pushed up the table and, depending on how many games you look back at, I think we're getting that consistency.

"Of course, we know that this is a nice challenge and a good test for the team now to see if we've really learned our lessons from the games we played against them last season.”
