The former Old Trafford defender is back working as a TV pundit following his ill-fated first managerial job at Valencia last term.

And Neville is convinced the big-money summer arrivals of Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly has given the Red Devils a crucial edge.

Neville said: “In the last three or four years, Manchester United have lacked stature on the pitch.

“They have lacked arrogance and they have lacked the players who have the b***s to be real Manchester United stars.

“In signing Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba they have players of stature and arrogance – in a good way – and, historically, United have always needed players with big personalities.

“They have a manager with a personality and stature. With those three people – and a couple of players who were already there – then there is an arrogance back in the club and the city.

“There are players wearing that shirt who will stick their chests outs and that’s what Manchester United is all about.

“I will say Manchester United for the title with Arsenal in second, Manchester City in third and Liverpool fourth.”
