LIVERPOOL: Former Liverpool star Jamie Carragher said on Tuesday that if Manchester United fails to take advantage of the away fixtures against other top clubs, it will cost them the English Premier League (EPL) title.

After eight matches in this EPL season, Manchester United have accumulated 20 points, winning six and drawing twice to sit on the second spot in the table. 

"I think the criticism will be saved until the end of the season if results in big away games don't improve and cost them the title," Carragher, who made 508 appearances for Liverpool, was qouted saying by The Independent. 

The 39-year-old also feels that Jose Mourinho's tactics have failed to work in favour of his club and the Portugese will have to improve in order to win the league. 

"His (Mourinho) way of late is not working. And I go back to when (Peter Schmeichel) was playing -- you had possibly six big games. That's 18 points, I think with the top six now, that's 30 points and that is a big part of the season," the former defender said. 

"If that doesn't improve then they will not win the league," Carragher added.
