Carragher says United get ‘too much criticism’ and talks up title credentials
Monday Night Football pundit Jamie Carragher was quick to highlight Manchester United as potential title challengers after the Red Devils 6-2 win against AS Roma in the Europa League on Thursday evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men were 2-1 down at half-time but turned the match around in convincing style to take a sizeable lead into the return leg at the Stadio Olympico.
With one foot seemingly in the final, it would take a mammoth comeback from Roma to deny United another chance of claiming European silverware, most recently winning the competition in 2017.
When speaking to the Pitch to Post Podcast, it was the second-half performance of Manchester United that caught the eye of Carragher:
"Man Utd were outstanding in the second half against Roma, they've got goals in the team.
"When you watch them play, there's lots of areas from which they can score.
"He could even possibly rest players in the second leg. I wouldn't say it was something I expected, but we've seen so often how they have come back from losing positions this season."
In the Premier League this season, Solskjaer's side have accumulated 28 points from losing positions this season – a league high.
It's statistics like these that could put United on course for title number 21, they never know when they're beaten.
Carragher went on to say that the most successful team in Premier League history, might be getting their mojo back:
"I actually think Man Utd get too much criticism for what they're doing right now
"We're talking about a team who haven't lost away from home in the Premier League this season and I think they've only lost one game in their last 20 or so in all competitions.
"They come from behind to win games, so I think there's a lot to be excited about.
"They'll need one or two players in the summer but that'll be the same for every team."
