The Red Devils struggled last season, sacking Jose Mourinho and appointing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who eventually led them to sixth in the table while Liverpool came within a point of winning the league title and lifted the UEFA Champions League honour.
Despite this parity in performances, Neville believes that United are getting better under Solskjaer and will beat the Reds to the league title.
"Manchester United will win the league before Liverpool... Salah will leave... I absolutely guarantee,". 😲— Sky Bet (@SkyBet) August 14, 2019
Some BIG words from @GNev2. 😳🤔

"I don’t sit here every day as a United fan and think my world’s ending. I just see it as a cycle. Eventually they will stumble upon the right recruitment system, the right recruitment people, they’ll get a great manager – hopefully that’s Ole – and they’ll start to win again. That’s going to happen," Neville said on Sky Bet's Big Debate.
"I can guarantee you as clear as day, Manchester United will win again. They’ll probably win the league before Liverpool, in my opinion. And that’s not being disrespectful, they’ll probably win the league before Liverpool."
It will be interesting to see if his prediction comes true in the future, considering that Liverpool are currently a highly settled unit under manager, Jurgen Klopp and are expected to challenge for trophies this season.
