Man United will finish third or fourth, declares Arsenal legend
Ray Parlour expects Manchester United to finish third or fourth
Ray Parlour has tipped Manchester United to finish in third or fourth place this season.
The Red Devils cemented their place in the top four courtesy of a 3-0 victory over Steve Bruce’s Hull City side at Old Trafford on Saturday.
And Arsenal legend Parlour is backing Louis van Gaal’s men to secure their return to the Champions League this season.
“The main objective for Van Gaal was always to get back in the top four and get back in the Champions League,” Parlour told Sky Sports News.
“I always thought they would. Whether it is going to be third or fourth. Chelsea and Manchester City will fight it out for the title.
“United will definitely be third or fourth.”
Former West Ham United striker Dean Ashton is tipping United to add a new centre-half to their squad in January in an attempt to strengthen their top-four claim.
“I’d say third. The players they have got, and they’ll bring in a centre-half in the January transfer window, Godin has been rumoured,” Ashton added.
“If they do bring in that defensive cover, they’ll be fine because they’ve great attacking options.”
