Gary Neville believes Manchester United will lift the Premier League title again before rivals Liverpool do.
Despite the Red Devils finishing sixth last season and the Reds only missing out on first by a single point to Manchester City, the one-time Valencia coach believes his former club are closer to winning the league than many think.
Though admitting United have struggled in recent years, Neville is adamant Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side are close to turning the tide and could beat Liverpool to silverware in the process.
"I don’t sit here every day as a United fan and think my world’s ending. I just see it as a cycle," Neville said on Sky Bet's The Big Debate .
"What I’m saying is, Liverpool, City, Tottenham, all these clubs have had poor recruitment policies over the last 25 or 30 years at times. So United are going through one at the moment.
"Eventually they will stumble upon the right recruitment system, the right recruitment people, they’ll get a great manager – hopefully that’s Ole – and they’ll start to win again. That’s going to happen.
"I can guarantee you as clear as day, Manchester United will win again. They’ll probably win the league before Liverpool, in my opinion. And that’s not being disrespectful, they’ll probably win the league before Liverpool."
