Former Manchester City manager Stuart Pearce has named the only team that is well positioned to challenge Pep Guardiola’s side for the Premier League title this season.
According to the former City boss, Manchester United are now fully in the race for the title.
The former England manager said that Erik ten Hag’s side are heading in the right direction and can challenge for the top.
Manchester United moved to within one point of second place after beating their neighbors 2-1 in the Manchester derby on Saturday.
Pearce told talkSPORT that Manchester United are 100% in the title race, claiming that the Red Devils’ game against Arsenal next Sunday could be crucial.
“I was asked the exact question pre-game, and I said, "If they win [against City], they are 100% in the title race."
“They go to Arsenal next week, and I tell you what, for all of us on the outside, what a game we have on our hands."
“They just keep coming thick and fast in this division, and they are well and truly in the title race,” he said.
