Man Utd legend Robson predicts title is for United to lose

Bryan Robson feels only Manchester United's massive injury list can prevent them winning the Premier League this season. United currently boast a one-point advantage over Manchester city with nine games remaining.

"The only detriment to United winning it could be loads of injuries," said Robson.

"Even if they lose out this time, United will be a bigger threat next season.

"They will not have another one where they suffer so many big injuries because this year it has been horrendous."

Given his status as an Old Trafford legend and club ambassador, it is hardly surprising Robson believes United will come out on top.

"Because of their experience over the years Manchester United will not take it for granted," he said. "They will not ease off.

"Paul Scholes has been a big influence. They have won nine and drawn one since he came back.

"But some of the other players have stepped up to the mark; Rio Ferdinand, Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick. They have all been excellent and Wayne Rooney has been scoring outstanding goals.

"On paper, City have the worst of the fixtures too, although United won't look at that too much because every game in the Premier League can be tough.

"Everybody will say the key issue is the game at Manchester City.

"But if United win it, they will win the league. They are going to have to lose it rather than City winning it."
