London: Tottenham Hotspur’s first team coach Joe Jordan believes that Manchester United have the experience and knowledge to win the Premier League title this season.

"United, who have come in for a bit of criticism, are where they are not just because they have quality players, they have the knowledge of how to maintain the consistency.” Jordan was quoted as saying by a leading daily.

He also raised doubts over Manchester City and Tottenham’s chances of claiming the title for the first time in 50 years even after their good run this season that has thrown up quite a challenge to the title holders.

"City haven`t done it since the 1960s, neither have Spurs, so it`s fair comment for people to question whether you can sustain it.”

"Tottenham and City won their last championship in the 1960s so it goes without saying it`s harder to win it.” he said

Tottenham face tough fixtures over the coming month with United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea and currently are third in the standings- eight points adrift of leaders City and five points behind second placed United.
