Nemanja Vidic claims that Manchester United are in a strong position to win the Premier League this season.

Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic believes that the Premier League title is for his side to lose.

The Red Devils went 15 points clear at the top of the table on Saturday with a 1-0 victory over Reading at Old Trafford.

"We will take the three points but we didn't get them easily," Vida told MUTV. "You want to win your games and play for your country during the international break without any bad feelings and we have done that. Now, we just have to think about the next games that are coming.

"If you look at the 15-point lead, you have to say that it is a big gap and we shouldn't let anything change. We have the title in our hands but we have games still to play and some especially tough away games that are traditionally hard for us. Nothing is finished yet, but we're in a good position.

"Sometimes you can feel the fans in the stands getting nervous because they think about last season. I don't think we should allow that to happen again. We are in a good position now. We should relax and enjoy playing football. It is a good time for us."

Manchester City are behind United in second place.
