Harry Redknapp tips Man United to win the Premier League

Harry Redknapp tips Man United to win the Premier League

Harry Redknapp likes Manchester United's chances in the upcoming Premier League season.

Harry Redknapp has made a shock prediction as to who will win the Premier League title in the new season.

The 2023/24 Premier League season gets underway on Friday as defending champions Manchester City travel to Vincent Kompany's Burnley on Friday.

The Blues will be looking to claim their fourth league title in a row, having won it in the last three seasons under Pep Guardiola's tutelage.

But Redknapp believes that there will be a different name on the trophy next season as he's backed Manchester United to win the league.

The Red Devils have not won the league since the 2012/13 season, when Sir Alex Ferguson guided the club to their 20th league title.

However, the former Portsmouth and Tottenham manager likes Man United's chances and praised Erik ten Hag's business this summer, hailing the transfers of Mason Mount and Andre Onana.

"While it wouldn’t be the greatest surprise to see Arsenal as champions, I’m actually tipping the Premier League to stay in Manchester. Just not with the team everyone thinks," he wrote in The Sun.

"Erik ten Hag did a great job in his first season at United and he’s another who has had a decent summer in the market.

"I’ve always liked Mason Mount and he is a great addition to the midfield while Andre Onana is one of the best keepers in the world."

Redknapp also touched on Rasmus Hojlund, who moved to Old Trafford in a transfer worth up to £72 million.

"Rasmus Hojlund might not have been their first choice for a new striker at the start of the summer but he looks a great prospect," he added.

"As good a season Marcus Rashford had last time, United have been after a goalscoring centre-forward for ages. This lad could be the answer.

"I think United are fantastic value and in my book they will be a real threat to everyone this season."
