Lou Macari says Manchester United have been lucky on their five-game run
Lou Macari says Manchester United have been lucky to win five successive games ahead of the visit of Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.
The Red Devils have climbed up to third place in the Premier League table after a brilliant run of results following a difficult start under Louis van Gaal.
They haven’t played very well and yet they’ve still managed to record five in a row. I can’t get to the bottom of it
However, former United midfielder Macari was keen to play down the significance of the Red Devils’s run, adding that the club haven’t played top football.
“It’s crazy. On the back of five victories I’m not overconfident [about beating Liverpool] by any means because during those five victories it’s fair to say, and even the manager has said it, Manchester United have been a little bit lucky,” Macari told talkSPORT.
“They haven’t played very well and yet they’ve still managed to record five in a row. I can’t get to the bottom of it.
“It’s crazy at the moment. We’ve really not seen a glimpse of a real top team that is in third place at this moment in time. I can’t believe it but somehow or another they’ve managed to do it.”
