Coppell tips United for title

20 Jan 2008 - 12:56:51

Reading boss Steve Coppell has backed Manchester United to edge out Arsenal in the race for the league title - providing they can keep their star players fit.

Coppell saw his Reading side lose 2-0 to the Red Devils at the Madejski Stadium on Saturday despite holding the champions to a goalless stalemate for 76 minutes.

Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo settled the game in the visitors' favour with a late double salvo.

But afterwards, the former Manchester United winger backed the Old Trafford club to retain their Premier League crown.

"It's between United and Arsenal," he admitted.

"European commitments will be key because from now on for them it will be a game every Saturday and a game every Wednesday.

"If either team lose any key individuals that will be significant.

"But if both sides stay healthy then I'd say United (will win the league) by a nose."
