Paddy Crerand says Manchester United have a good chance of finishing in the top four of the Premier League this season – as long as their injury situation improves.

The Red Devils find themselves 10th in the table after a stuttering start to life under new manager Louis van Gaal at Old Trafford.

United are currently four points behind fourth place as they look to break back into the Champions League spots.

United can go on a long run of games and we’ve got to see that happen

And United legend Crerand is confident that Van Gaal’s side have the required quality to qualify for Europe’s elite club competition if they can get more of their first-team fit.

“If we get an injury-free spell and the manager gets a settled team then that will make a huge difference,” Crerand told ManUtd.com.

“You have to fancy Chelsea in the league, but Europe could affect some of the other teams at the top of the table and that could play to our advantage.

“We want to be in the Champions League, of course we do. Everybody does, and getting back there is our big aim this season.

“Most people were expecting big things this year and because of the injury situation it’s not happened so far.

“It’s just a case of getting everyone fit. United can go on a long run of games and we’ve got to see that happen. It will happen, I’m confident of that.”

Will Man Utd finish in the top four?
