Liverpool hero Kuyt: Man Utd can win Premier League title

Feyenoord attacker Dirk Kuyt says Europa League opponents Manchester United can win the Premier League.

United's 100 per cent start to their campaign came to a halt on Saturday as Pep Guardiola struck the first blow in the title race as Manchester City triumphed 2-1.

Kuyt believes they are contenders for the Premier League this crown but underlined how that loss has increased the load.

"I think they are under enormous pressure, because everyone wants them to win the league," he said.

"Everyone can see what it did to the team when they lost to City at the weekend, already there is more pressure on the team, although the teams in the Premier League have difficulties in challenging the teams like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

"For me, the Premier League is still the toughest league in the world, so it's great to watch.

"Of course I try to watch Liverpool every week, and all of the teams, and for me Manchester United is a contender to win the league this season, but there are a few more."
