Manchester United won’t finish in the Premier League’s top four this season, according to Michael Owen.

The Red Devils are in fifth place in the Premier League table and six points behind Manchester City, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.

I can’t see Manchester United getting into the top four

Louis van Gaal led the Red Devils back into Europe’s premier club competition in his first season in charge at Old Trafford after the Dutchman replaced David Moyes in 2014.

However, former Liverpool and United striker Owen believes Arsenal, City, Leicester and Tottenham will finish in the top four ahead of the 20-time English champions.

“I think the top four is what it’s going to be at the end of the season,” Owen told BT Sport.

“I can’t see Manchester United getting into the top four. It has to be seen as a bad season and a failure for all of the top clubs.

“Taking Leicester out of it, the rest of the teams are way down on their points from last year.”

United make the trip to Sunderland in the Premier League in Saturday’s early kick-off at the Stadium of Light.

The Red Devils have already lost six of their 25 Premier League games this season, including four defeats on the road.
