Tevez: United Are Favorites

Tevez: United Are Favorites

Man Utd loan striker Carlos Tevez believes the Salford based club should be favorites to win both the Premiership AND the Champions League.

Despite United's lacklustre displays and, up until they faced a poor Wigan side on Saturday, their inability to score goals, Tevez reckons they should be favorite due to the fact they 'have special players'.

'Arsenal are the leaders in the table but Manchester United should be favourites for the title and the Champions League,' Tevez told the Mirror

'I think we will show that and prove it to our opponents when we play them in the key matches this season. United have special players and Cristiano Ronaldo is the best in the Premier League.'

'He is ideal, great and easy to play alongside because he provides assists and scores goals.'

Another United player has spoken about Arsenal's chances in a more rational manner, and indeed his opinions are something that concern me as we gooners are getting a little carried away.

Patrice Evra thinks our true test will come after suffering our first league defeat of the season.

'There is no doubt that Arsenal are a stronger side than they were last season, but I don't think we will know about this team until they lose,' the Frenchman said in The Sun.

'That's the important time when you look to see how a team reacts. It is how you bounce back.

We were 25/1 at the start of the season....I wish I'd have had a cheeky score on it. I still think that Evra is correct though, how we bounce back from our first defeat will shape our whole season.

It does look like they removed his head and sewed it back on - the wrong way round. If ManU started firing, then they might be favourites. I'm happy to remain an 'underdog' sitting on top of the league... anyway shouldn't we be talking about this after Xmas?

To be talking about titles two months into a ten month season is a bit premature whoever it comes from. I am happy for Tevez and Evra to put the weight of expectation on Utds shoulders. Statements like theirs always have a 'whistling in the dark' element to them. Some claim we haven't played anyone yet but 3 of our 8 Premiership games have been against teams in the current top 6. Bouncebackability has become something of a footballing cliche but lack of fear is an advantage of youth so though, traditionally we have a wobble around November time, I think the squad is better equipped to cope than in recent seasons.

Even talk about it after Anfield and Man Yoo at home. Our hardest games so far have been Blackburn and West Ham away. Far too early. just enjoy the fact that we have won the games we should be winning.

Don't think Arsene is in any mood to engage with this type of talk right now either - he's going to let the football do the talking.
