Jamie Carragher says ARSENAL have a ‘better chance’ of winning the Champions League than Man United


Jamie Carragher taunts Manchester United by claiming ARSENAL have a ‘better chance’ of winning the Champions League… even though Mikel Arteta’s men aren’t in Europe this season!

  • Manchester United’s last chance of silverware this season rests in Europe
  • The Red Devils take on Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last-16
  • But United have won just once in their last four games, including a FA Cup exit
  • Jamie Carragher says Arsenal are more likely to win the Champions League
  • The Gunners are not even playing in Europe this season under Mikel Arteta 











Jamie Carragher has fired shots at Manchester United’s poor form by claiming Arsenal have a better chance of winning the Champions League than Ralf Rangnick’s team. 

The Red Devils have struggled for consistency under interim boss Rangnick, winning just one in their last four matches in all competitions – a run which included a FA Cup fourth-round exit to Middlesbrough on penalties. 

That means United’s only chance of winning silverware this season lies in the Champions League, with the Premier League side travelling to Atletico Madrid for the last-16 first-leg this week.

But Carragher has poked fun at United’s recent form by joking that Arsenal have a better chance of winning this season’s Champions League than United, even though the Gunners are not even playing European football this season.

The former Liverpool defender’s fellow CBS Sports pundit Alex Scott was asked who she thinks will go all the way and win this season’s Champions League. 

The former Arsenal defender was told by Gunners legend Thierry Henry that she couldn’t pick the north London club, with Scott on the verge of explaining why she thinks that Manchester City can win Europe’s premier club competition.

But Carragher butted in with the jibe: ‘I’ll tell you what though: Arsenal have got more chance (of winning the Champions League) than Manchester United.’

The jibe comes a day after Carragher made fun of former United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel, who unconvincingly claimed the Red Devils have a chance of winning the Saint Petersburg final in May. 

The unsure response from the Danish goalkeeper left Carragher, Henry and Sportsmail columnist Micah Richards in hysterics during Tuesday night’s European coverage on CBS.

Schmeichel was asked by Richards: ‘Peter, do you honestly believe that Manchester United can win the Champions League? Be honest with me now, no messing around.’

After a long pause, he replied emphatically: ‘Yes. What kind of a question is that?’

Following a big laugh from the studio, which also included Henry, Carragher responded: ‘What kind of an answer is that?!’
