Gary Neville has talked up Manchester United's title chances and insisted this group of players will believe they can have a 'special' season after moving top of the Premier League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men showed the spirit of champions to edge out Burnley at Turf Moor with Paul Pogba scoring a second-half winner to send United three points clear of Liverpool ahead of Sunday's crucial clash.

Neville admitted he never expected United to be in this position but insisted they are in a title race after beating Burnley on Tuesday night.

'It's been a really difficult few years and there's been times when Manchester United have looked a million miles away from the top of the league so to be top and three points clear of a really good Liverpool side in January isn't something that was expected.

The former United man has been heavily critical of the club's performances in recent years but credited the players and Solskjaer for transforming themselves into title contenders.

Sky Sports pundit Neville now has faith his old club have the players to compete for the title and believes all the pressure will be on Liverpool in the build-up to Sunday's showdown as they wouldn't have ever seen United as a threat.

'I don't think it will be a comfortable few days for Liverpool in the sense that I don't think they would've expected Manchester United to be anywhere near them or seen them as a competitor or a threat this season which is why I think this week can be a little bit of fun for Manchester United fans but I also believe these players feel they can have a really special season because it's odd, it's changing every week and you don't know what's going to happen and United can exploit that.
