Jason Cundy predicts where Man United and Chelsea will finish

Jason Cundy is tipping Manchester United to win the Premier League title in Jose Mourinho's first season in charge

Jason Cundy is tipping Manchester United to win the Premier League title in Jose Mourinho’s first season in charge at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are currently preparing for their top-flight opener against Bournemouth on the south coast on Sunday afternoon as they look to bounce back from their fifth-placed finish last season.

There is a fresh sense of optimism around Old Trafford following Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager back in May.

The Portuguese coach has been drafted in to help restore United to the top of English football after they ended up in fifth place and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal.

United have not won the Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge of the club back in 2013.

However, former Chelsea man Cundy feels that Mourinho is the right man to guide the Red Devils to the title this season – and is also tipping the Blues to end up in the top four.

Speaking on BT Sport 3 last week, Cundy said: “I have got United to win it [the title].

“And in no particular order after: Manchester City, Chelsea and Spurs. I have got Arsenal to miss out.”
