Paul Scholes believes Manchester United can win the Premier League after “finding an exciting way to play” and Michael Owen agrees, but only if Paul Pogba and Bruno Fernandez start playing together.

Paul Scholes and Michael Owen believe Manchester United are capable of winning the Premier League this season after picking up a sixth straight win over Sheffield United.
Ole Gunnar’s Solskazir’s side came from behind, beating Chris Wilder’s side 3-2 on Thursday night, leaving the Premier League champions five points behind.
Marcus Rashford scored twice for Anthony Marshall on both sides of the strike and Scholes believes United’s attacking line-up could do well to introduce their title charge.

Scholes (above) claims that the Red Devils will work on the challenge in May, eliminating any fitness issues.
Scholes told Amazon Prime Sport: ‘I think if they could keep nine or ten players fit for the next 226 games, they would be there or in the vicinity they would find an exciting way to play.
‘I think (Soulsky) has changed a lot in structure and staff. For five games (last year) they didn’t change teams and today’s team is without left-back and goalkeeper. It’s a 4-2-3-1-1 and it’s effective.
‘It’s a structure that really suits the team. (Bruno) Marshall, Rashford and (Mason) Fernandez put Greenwood in the No. 10 role. How fantastic is that? They are one of the best, fastest finishers in Europe.
‘The problem is (Paul) getting control and control with Pogba and (Nemanja) Matic. These two games need to get control, Fernandes needs that. “Once they found out they were flying.”
Marcus Rashford (R) scored a brace and Anthony Marshall (C) scored a goal on Thursday 3-2.
The Red Devils fell behind in the opening minutes on Thursday night as a goalkeeper error from Dean Henderson allowed David McGoldrick to score but Rashford and Marshall scored every goal before half-time.
Rushford then opened the scoring with a two-goal lead from Pogbar’s pass, but the Blades bounced back just before the second-half stop through McGoldrick, with Soulscare’s side holding a light lead.
Michael Owen believes that his regular line-up in the Red Devils squad, like Pogba, Fernandes and Rashford, has been a must for Soulsky, who has been frustrated with his starting line-up.
Owen told Prime Sport: ‘Well they (can win the league). There are some teams that could. The only way they can get their best players on the pitch.

‘If you have Pogba and Fernandes on your team, you can’t win the title if they are on the stand. You’ve got these incredible players you’ve spent millions on, the only way you can win the title is by playing your best players
If you take out two or three, they are a perfect team. Ole Gunnar Salsakazar will have to find a way to play Pogba, Fernandez and Rashford Tojita, it’s unbelievable how they didn’t put them together. ‘
Two-goal hero Rashford, however, can rule out any notion of a title charge because he believes the season could change very quickly for each team.

The England forward told Amazon: ‘We play one game at a time, it’s early in the season. Will have to play a lot of football.
‘There will be many ups and downs for everyone. We need to find continuity away from home and see where we can be late for the season. ”
Manchester United have now won six games in a row on the road but their focus has now shifted back to Old Trafford where they have won the league only once in the entire season.
Solskazar’s squad will face Leeds United in hopes of closing the gap at the top of the table in Sunday night’s derby clash.
