Fellaini admits Manchester United’s hopes of winning Premier League title may already be over

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has admitted that his side have already fallen dangerously behind their rivals for the Premier League title after just six games of the season.

Jose Mourinho’s side slipped to a disappointing, albeit deserved, draw at home to newly promoted Wolves earlier today.

The Red Devils now sit eight points points behind first place Liverpool and six behind local rivals Manchester City, with Chelsea who are currently five points clear set to face West Ham tomorrow.

Speaking after today’s game Fellaini admitted his side are hugely disappointed with their lacklustre performance and conceded that it will now be very difficult to make up ground on their rivals despite it being so early in the season.

“Everyone is disappointed. We know we can do better. We have to win today because after that it will be difficult to close the gap. Everyone is disappointed but that is football,” Fellaini told Premier League Productions.

“We have to move the ball quicker, when we create the chances we have to score.”
