Jones: No reason why Man Utd cannot win the Premier League title

Phil Jones believes Manchester United are in the Premier League title race up to their eyeballs.

The Red Devils returned to the top of the table after beating Sunderland 3-0 on Saturday after neighbours Manchester City relinquished first position with a 4-1 defeat at Tottenham.

Having won five of their opening seven league fixtures, defender Jones believes Louis van Gaal has at his disposal a squad capable of landing the 2015/16 English top tier title.

"We have a great squad, loads of talented players. There is no reason why we can't win the league," Jones said as United look ahead to Champions League action in midweek.

"But I think that is a step too far at the moment in terms of short goals.

"We are concentrating on the Wolfsburg game on Wednesday night now and making sure we get a positive result."
