Manchester United legend and now QPR and Match of the Day pundit, Rio Ferdinand, has backed Man United to win the Premier League, despite their lack of signings and opening day defeat to Swansea.
"I'm backing Manchester United to win the league."
"Manchester United will win because they have a good manager. Wayne Rooney is a good choice as captain. This is his 10th year and he will be top scorer in the League this season.
"Obviously they need their best players fit. Last season Robin Van Persie did not play much but he could also be a top scorer."
He also took the time to discredit the chances of Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.
"I do not see Chelsea winning [the title].
"They [Arsenal] have bought well but I just don't know where all their players are going to fit.
"Olivier Giroud, Alexis Sanchez, Theo Walcott, when he is fit Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mesut Ozil, Lukas Podolski."
"The biggest problem for Liverpool is that for many of their players, this is the first time they are playing in the Champions League.
"They are not used to the volume of games that they will have to play now and they've got a lot of new players who have to get accustomed to the new way of life."
