Gabby Agbonlahor insists Manchester United should aim to be part of the title race and backs them to take Arsenal top of the Premier League table.
United were in impressive form on Tuesday night as they swept Bournemouth off the field in a 3-0 win at Old Trafford thanks to goals from Casemiro, Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford.
The win leaves Erik ten Hag’s side fourth in the league, level on points with Newcastle and just a point behind second-place rivals Man City.
Gabriel Agbonlahor told talkSPORT that Man Utd should try to be in the title race
Erik ten Hag’s team should be looking to push Arsenal to the top of the Premier League, says former Villa star Agbonlahor
Speaking of talkSPORT This morning Agbonlahor believes United must now be taken seriously as title contenders and says they should try to be in the title race.
“I said that last week, I said Manchester United should watch a title race,” said the former Aston Villa forward.
“Everyone said you were crazy to say that, but why not? One point behind Manchester City, nine points behind Arsenal, Arsenal could still lose points. Manchester United must try to push Arsenal.
Victory against Bournemouth on Tuesday means United are just a point behind Man City
The win over Bournemouth was United’s fourth straight win and third straight clean sheet since returning from the World Cup break.
Fittingly, United’s three goalscorers against the Cherries have been key factors in the Red Devils’ recent good form.
Casemiro has been seen as a huge success since his £60m move from Real Madrid in the summer, while Luke Shaw is returning to his best – even covering as a centre-back.
Marcus Rashford scored his 12th goal of the season in a 3-0 win over Bournemouth
Then there’s Marcus Rashford, who has already doubled his goalscoring record from last season and is currently one of the Premier League’s most stable players.
His goal on Tuesday was his 12th goal of the season and means he has scored in every United game since returning from World Cup action with England.
The next Ten Hags face a cup double when they meet Everton in the third round of the FA Cup on Friday and face Charlton from League One in next week’s Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
