A WhatsApp group chat was leaked yesterday involving Manchester United players speaking about how they could beat Arsenal & Manchester City to the Premier League title. These messages were of course before they were thrashed 7-0 by Liverpool on the weekend…
According to the Daily Mail by way of DaveOCKOP, it looks like Man United players were discussing how they could overtake Arsenal and beat The Gunners to the Premier League title this season.
The Red Devils’ recent form hasn’t gone unnoticed in the footballing world and it looks like the players shared the same enthusiasm as their fans, by talking in their group chat about potentially ending the season with a three way title race between Arsenal, Manchester City and Manchester United.
However Manchester United players underestimated their bitter rivals Liverpool and a hostile Anfield atmosphere. They went on to record their worst loss in history on the weekend.
There is no doubt that the Red Devils current form came as a surprise to many especially after a poor start of the season. The crown of their great form was last weekend’s Carabao Cup trophy win after beating Newcastle in the final.
However, Manchester United players and fans got a much needed reality check at Anfield, as they are now sitting 14 points behind the league leaders Arsenal and nine points behind second-placed Manchester City.

There are only 12 games left until the end of the season, and it is looking likely that it will be Arsenal and Manchester City fighting it out for the Premier League title.
If Arsenal win it, it will be The Gunners first league title since The Invincibles in 2003/04. Right now, Arsenal are five points ahead of Manchester City, however do still need to travel to the Etihad before the season is over, which could be a defining moment in this season’s title race.
