And Scholes sees last season's defeat at home to Chelsea deciding the destiny of the title.
He said: "You always re-evaluate when you lose the league. You look at why it didn't happen and we have done that but I don't think it's a case of just being better.
"We weren't that far away from winning it last year we were only a point away. We lost the game at home against Chelsea which was probably the deciding factor really.
"If we had won that who knows? The desire was there, there's no doubt about that, we were right up there and now we want to win the title back again from Chelsea."
