Following Manchester United's brilliant attacking display to defeat Sheff field United on Thursday night Michael Owen has made a bold statement about the club's chances of clinching the Premier League crown this season.
United traveled to Bramall Lane on Thursday having won their last 9 games on the road, and though not everyone expected it, they made it ten wins away from home on the bounce. A Brace from Marcus Rashford and a third goal from Anthony Martial - his first of the season - were enough to clinch the win even though Chris Wilder's side looked like they were going to put on a late fight.
United were down by a goal early in the first half but recovered before the end of the first forty-five minutes and headed into the break leading 2-1.
Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard is reportedly considering the idea of leaving the club on loan when the January transfer window opens in the coming weeks.

Jesse Lingard was registered for the Manchester United squads for both the Premier League and the Champions League but he's yet to feature in either competition this season. The Manchester United Academy graduate has been restricted to just two appearances for the Red Devils this term and those games were in the Capital One Cup.
