Luke Shaw, Manchester United full-back, believes that it would be ridiculous to exclude his team from the Premier League title nominations this season, recognizing at the same time the need for the Red Devils to show more stability in the level, so that they are real candidates.

In the last round, Manchester beat Leeds United 6-2 last Sunday, leaving the team one point away from second Leicester and 5 points behind leaders Liverpool, with a remaining match.

According to Sky Sports, Shaw said, “The way the Premier League is going at the moment, it would be silly to question our capabilities. Everyone has chances. I think the team that will take responsibility and do well in the Christmas period and achieve victories in all its matches will have a Very good chance.”

He added, “We have to try to find level’s stability. We cannot afford to play a good match and then a bad match. You cannot compete for the title in that way.”

He continued: “Exiting the Champions League is very painful, but if we could have a steady level, we will be in a better position than we are, and we need to develop as other teams do.”

And he said: “We must make Old Trafford the stadium that the teams are afraid to come to again, perhaps the difference does not feel that now with the negative results we have achieved on it.”

He concluded: “I think that we create opportunities and sometimes miss the decision in the last third, and on our stadium we did not have the required intensity, we know that we need to develop.”
