Elliott backs Man Utd to win title over former club Chelsea

Former Chelsea defender Paul Elliott says Manchester United deserve to win the Premiership ahead of his old club.

Elliott wrote in the Daily Mail: "The football Chelsea played under Jose Mourinho was what I call winning football. United play winning football but are so much easier on the eye. Chelsea have always been more functional and that has not changed under Avram Grant. If I watch a Chelsea game I look at the players individually rather than collectively. Individually, I am entertained but there is none of that collective impetus and enthusiasm I see with United or Arsenal.

"Mourinho was at the club for three years and turned Chelsea into winners with a winning habit and a winning mentality. But the manner in which you win is important too. That is what makes United head and shoulders above everyone else in the Barclays Premier League."
