Manchester United have no chance of winning the Premier League title this season, according to Michael Owen.

Louis van Gaal’s side drew their league clash against Aston Villa 1-1 on Saturday after Radamel Falcao rescued a point by cancelling out Christian Benteke’s superb 18th-minute strike with his second-half header.

Despite the home side then going a man down following referee Lee Mason’s decision to send off Gabriel Agbonlahor for a challenge on Ashley Young, United were unable to capitalise and instead had to settle for a point at Villa Park.

The Red Devils sit in third place in the Premier League table – seven points off leaders Chelsea – but Owen believes Van Gaal’s team won’t be able to catch up with Jose Mourinho’s men despite the Dutchman’s belief that they may launch a title charge this term.
