Jose Mourinho has predicted that Manchester United have no chance of winning the Premier League title.
United began their campaign with a 4-0 drubbing of Chelsea on Sunday, with Frank Lampard in charge for the first time for the visitors.
The Red Devils finished sixth last season and face a tough task to make the top four this season.
And Mourinho has written off his former club, along with their first opponents and Arsenal.
On his punditry debut for Sky Sports, Mourinho was asked how many sides can win the title.
“Four. Manchester City, Tottenham, Liverpool and Manchester City B team.
“Today, even if one team plays magnificently or has a fantastic result, I don’t believe the title is possible,” he replied.
