Eric Cantona predicts where Man United will finish this season

Eric Cantona discusses Manchester United's Premier League title hopes under Jose Mourinho this season

Eric Cantona is convinced that Manchester United have what it takes to win the Premier League under Jose Mourinho this season.

It has been a mixed start to the campaign for the Portuguese coach following his appointment as Louis van Gaal’s successor at Old Trafford back in May.

The Red Devils currently find themselves in sixth place in the Premier League table and five points adrift of leaders Manchester City after seven games of the new campaign.

United are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League trip to Anfield to take on Liverpool next Monday night.

And asked to give his take on Mourinho’s start at United, Cantona insisted that he is convinced the Red Devils can lift the top-flight crown this term.

Cantona is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “It’s just the beginning. Manchester can still be champions. Jose Mourinho is a successful manager at a successful club which this year has successful players.

“But this is an extremely difficult championship, full of great teams and great managers like (Manchester City coach) Pep Guardiola.”
