Man Utd loan striker Carlos Tevez believes the Salford based club should be favorites to win both the Premiership AND the Champions League.

Despite United’s lacklustre displays and, up until they faced a poor Wigan side on Saturday, their inability to score goals, Tevez reckons they should be favorite due to the fact they ‘have special players’.

‘Arsenal are the leaders in the table but Manchester United should be favourites for the title and the Champions League,’ Tevez told the Mirror

‘I think we will show that and prove it to our opponents when we play them in the key matches this season. United have special players and Cristiano Ronaldo is the best in the Premier League.’

‘He is ideal, great and easy to play alongside because he provides assists and scores goals.’

Another United player has spoken about Arsenal’s chances in a more rational manner, and indeed his opinions are something that concern me as we gooners are getting a little carried away.

Patrice Evra thinks our true test will come after suffering our first league defeat of the season.

‘There is no doubt that Arsenal are a stronger side than they were last season, but I don’t think we will know about this team until they lose,’ the Frenchman said in The Sun.

‘That’s the important time when you look to see how a team reacts. It is how you bounce back.
