Phil Neville believes the key to Manchester United reclaiming the Premier League next season is to turn draws into victories.
United drew 15 matches last season, the highest amount in the league, as they finished sixth. They needed Europa League glory to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
But former United player Neville believes they can challenge for the ultimate honours in the coming season with more of a ruthless streak in front of goal.
If you look at the drawn games at Old Trafford last season and convert maybe 90 per cent of those into wins, then United would have been challenging for the title,’ Neville told MUTV.
If they can do that this year, then I think the title will come back to Manchester.
‘United are heading in the right direction and the confidence the manager and his squad got from winning the EFL Cup and Europa League can be taken into the Champions League and the league next year.

‘United are going to have to improve as well because they didn’t finish in the top four last season.
Now, every time I pick up a paper, another player is linked with United but I’m sure Jose will bring success, like he did last season, and ultimately, hopefully, bring the title back to Manchester.’
