Anthony Elanga has not ruled out the prospect of Manchester United winning the Premier League title this season.
Man United started off their season with embarrassing defeats to Brighton & Hove Albion and Brentford but found themselves six points behind league leaders Arsenal with a game in hand after a quick turn of form.
The Red Devils have won their last four league games including wins over Liverpool and Arsenal but despite their recent form, United are still not regarded as one of the top four candidates to snatch the title this season.
While Anthony Elanga admits it’s still early to predict where Manchester United will finish this season, the Sweden international believes the Reds could raise many eyebrows if they maintained their current form through the season.
When asked if Man United can win the Premier League this season, Elanga told fotbollskanal: “It’s still early to answer, but if we continue to play as we have done and win matches then… you never know.”
The Manchester United academy graduate said one of the things Erik ten Hag has improved in the squad is the team’s attitude.
There has obviously been a change of character in the Manchester United team, unlike under Ralf Rangnick, as the players now play with responsibility and as a team, which has also helped United hit the stride.
“If I have to say one thing [that’s changed under Erik ten Hag], it’s attitude,” said Elanga. “Our attitude has improved a lot. We are more focused and know what to do. We play as a team.”
Elanga is also a fan of Ten Hag’s decision to have enough qualities in each position, although his playing time has reduced since the arrival of Antony from Ajax.
“It’s important to have good competition in the team,” said the Swedish forward. “He [Antony] plays on the right and I play on the left. It’s good. We are all young and we have a lot of games this year.”
