Arsene Wenger knows a thing or two about winning big trophies such as the Premier League, and he doesn’t believe the current crop of Manchester United players have enough to challenge this season.
“When you see Man Utd, they are one of the examples where there is a potential there,’ he revealed to beIN Sports. “But they have not found a collective way.
