Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has said Manchester United’s season “is not dead” following their 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.
Wenger claims the Red Devils can still enjoy a successful season and even win the Premier League.
Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick and goals from Naby Keita and Diojo Jota secured Liverpool’s biggest win at Old Trafford for over 100 years.
The loss also piled the pressure on United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, whose side now sit in seventh place with 14 points.
But Wenger says Solskjaer’s side should look at Manchester City’s turnaround last season for inspiration.
“You have to try to create hope. Manchester City won the title last year, they were 11 points behind at one stage and they were 10th in the league in December.
“So if they rectify it, they are still not out of it completely. Also, in the Champions League, they can still qualify. So their season is not dead but if they continue like that, it will be quickly,” Wenger said on beIN Sports.
