Bolt: Manchester Utd are favourites to win Premier League


USAIN BOLT believes Manchester United are favourites to win the Premier League title this season.

The eight-time Olympic gold medallist Bolt, who retired after the World Championships in London this summer and is an avid United fan, was recently pictured at Old Trafford for the 2-0 win over Leicester and he thinks the team are favourites for their first title win since 2013.

"I personally think so. We're looking pretty good, the players are playing with confidence, which is always a key thing," he said.

Man Utd currently sit top of the league with three wins from three after an impressive start to the campaign which has yet to see them concede a goal.

Mourinho led United to the EFL Cup and Europa League last season and has added new editions to his squad over the summer, including Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic and Victor Lindelof and Bolt believes the Portuguese is the right man to lead the club back to the top.

"Yeah, without a doubt. I said it last year, last year we just couldn't score, that was our biggest issue," he added.

"We played well, we defended well, but we could not score goals. This season, we don't have that problem. So I've told people, as long as we start scoring, we're going to do great.

"So that's a good thing and as I've said, I'm very impressed, and I've told people that I was very happy when Mourinho came on board."

Manchester United will return to the Champions League this season thanks to the Europa League triumph, having been drawn alongside Benfica, Basel and CSKA Moscow.
