Man United will get top four after turning corner, says ex-Arsenal man
Paul Merson says the Manchester United players are adapting to Louis van Gaal's methods
Manchester United have turned a corner in recent weeks, according to Paul Merson.
The Red Devils are in the top four and a point behind third-placed Southampton after an edgy 2-1 victory over Stoke City at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.
Louis van Gaal’s side make the daunting trip to their rivals Southampton on Monday, looking to secure their fifth successive Premier League win.
And Arsenal legend Paul Merson reckons the United players are starting to adapt to Van Gaal’s method, pointing to their much-improved performances.
“They’ve turned a corner for me,” Merson told Sky Sports HQ. “Slowly turning.”
Merson added: “They’ll get top four now. They’re a distance away from winning the league, though.
“You hear things out of United that they’re going to win the league. Not this year.”
Van Gaal signed a three-year deal in May after being named as David Moyes’s permanent successor.
