Ole Gunnar Solskjær believes that Chelsea and Manchester United will be two teams battling for the title in May while not expecting the likes of Liverpool or Arsenal to make an impact.
United are currently fifth in the table, five points behind league leaders Arsenal with Chelsea in fourth, one point ahead of the defending Champions. David Moyes, who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson, has had a disastrous start to his campaign, already losing three games against Liverpool, Manchester City and West Bromwich Albion while drawing against Southampton and Chelsea.
However, there are indications that the Red Devils are finding their feet, winning their last game against Arsenal at Old Trafford which reduced the deficit from a staggering eight points at the top.
Meanwhile, Chelsea are also struggling to put in a consistent performance, losing against Newcastle and drawing with West Brom in recent weeks. Jose Mourinho's return to the club had instigated a sense of relief among the supporters but the Portuguese manager is yet to show his 2004 form, where he won two Premier League titles on the trot.
Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are likely to go all the way given their recent form, but Solskjær believes that there will only be two teams come the beginning of May in close proximity of each other.
"David's started slowly then the machinery has started to work now so I'm pleased with the progress they've made. Everyone's talking about a bad, bad start but if you look at the other championship contenders they're not very far ahead," Solskjær told Sky Sports. .
"Man United and Chelsea, those two for me are the main contenders. Of course Man United can win it, absolutely no problem. They've got the players to do it, they've got the history to do it, now when David is getting to know the players, I'm sure we'll improve. I'm still saying 'we'!
"After almost 15 years you still feel a part," he concluded.
