Paul Scholes delivers verdict on Man United under Jose Mourinho

Paul Scholes says he has no doubt that Manchester United will finish in the top four this season

Paul Scholes has said that he has no doubt that Manchester United will finish in the Premier League’s top four this season thanks to their improved form under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils have been showing signs of improvement under their new manager following a stuttering start to the campaign under the Portuguese coach.

Manchester United had initially struggled to produce consistent form in the Premier League but are now unbeaten in their last 16 games in the top flight.

However, despite their improved form, the Red Devils are still sixth in the table as they bid to secure Champions League qualification for next season.

And former Manchester United midfielder Scholes says that there are plenty of reasons for Manchester United fans to be positive after their improved recent form.

Speaking to The Daily Mail, Scholes said: “It’s been a massive improvement from what we’ve seen in the last couple of years.

“The first two or three months weren’t great but they’ve turned it around.

“There’s a way of playing that the fans are enjoying.

“The only problem is they’re still sixth, which after being in such good form is a bit of a worry. But I watch them now and have no doubt they’ll finish in the top four.

“They’re playing the best out of the top six with Chelsea and you have to fancy them to finish second or third. Probably third if I had to nail it down.”

Manchester United are currently gearing up for their Europa League clash against Saint-Etienne at Old Trafford on Thursday night.
