Paul Scholes believes his former club Manchester United are capable of winning the Premier League this season.

The ex-United midfielder has been impressed with the position his old club have got themselves into despite not hitting their peak.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are within touching distance of defending champions Liverpool and if they win their game in hand they would move within two points of Jurgen Klopp’s outfit.

And with United ‘coming into form’ now, Scholes thinks they’re capable of winning the league.

‘Why do I think they can? Because they’re a better team [than Leicester],’ Scholes told BT Sport ahead of their Premier League clash with the Foxes.

‘I think they’ve got better players. They’re starting to come into form now.

‘You have to say, the first part of the season, when they were really poor at times, some really bad results – especially at home, getting beaten by Arsenal, Crystal Palace, obviously the disaster against Tottenham – and they’re still right there.

Win the game in hand and they go two points behind Liverpool. It’s without playing well.

‘This last two weeks they’ve really started to look like a team again.

‘They’ve really struggled to get the balance right in midfield, especially trying to protect the defensive players.

‘But now I think he’s found a way. It’s strange, it looks like he’s gone for a different formation today but the last few weeks he’s played a 4-2-1-3 and it’s really suited them and I think they’ve looked really attacking, really exciting, looked like they can score a lot of goals.

‘They’re still giving chances away but so what? As long as a team can score goals I think you’ll always have a chance.’
