Gary Neville: Why Jose Mourinho will be frustrated after Man United win

Gary Neville says Jose Mourinho will be frustrated that his Manchester United side have not yet broken back into the top four

Gary Neville says there is still plenty to play for this season for Manchester United after their impressive 3-0 win over Leicester on Sunday.

The Red Devils returned to winning ways in the Premier League in style with a comfortable victory over the champions at the King Power Stadium thanks to goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Juan Mata.

The result was a welcome one for Jose Mourinho’s men, who had drawn their last three games in the Premier League heading into the clash with the Foxes.

The win left Manchester United sixth in the table but now just a point behind fifth-placed Liverpool as they look to step up their bid for a top-four finish.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday’s game, Neville said: “United are now within touching distance of that top four now.

“With Arsenal dropping points, Liverpool dropping points, [Manchester] City just about getting away with it – United had to win today.

“Mourinho will be frustrated that this 15-match unbeaten run has not seen them climb back into the top four, and will be frustrated at dropping points in midweek, but his team have played well today.

“They have a lot to look forward to. They have an upcoming match against Watford, they have the FA Cup, a League Cup final, the Europa League. There is a lot still to play for, and the programme will get heavier in the coming weeks.”
