The demoralizing loss saw the Red Devils drop to seventh on the log with 14 points, eight off league leaders Chelsea who have 22 after nine rounds of matches.

"You have to try to create hope. Manchester City won the title last year, they were 11 points behind at one stage and they were 10th in the league in December," Wenger said on beIN SPORTS.
"So if they rectify it, they are still not out of it completely. Also, in the Champions League, they can still qualify. So their season is not dead but if they continue like that, it will be quickly," he added.

The legendary Frenchman noted United can draw inspiration from Man City's turnaround last season for inspiration.

However, Wenger was quick to admit Liverpool's defeat does leave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a precarious position and will have to do a lot more to turn around the tide.

"At the moment Manchester United are in-between pressing and dropping off and that is a little bit the worse situation for a team," he noted.

Former star speaks about Jose Mourinho humiliation

Earlier, Briefly News reported that Bastian Schweinsteiger has stated emphatically that Jose Mourinho tendered an apology to him for the way he was treated at Manchester United when the Portuguese arrived as manager.

Before the former Germany international retired from football, he joined Manchester United in 2015 after leaving German giants Bayern Munich where he actually made his name in the game.

And during his first season as a Manchester United player, it was Louis van Gaal who was the manager at Old Trafford and Bastian enjoyed active playing time.
