Jamie Carragher sends message to Man United about Jose Mourinho
Jamie Carragher is backing Jose Mourinho to keep Manchester United on course for a top-four finish this season
Jamie Carragher is backing Jose Mourinho to keep Manchester United on course for a top-four finish in the Premier League.
The Red Devils have been in solid form in recent weeks and kept their Champions League qualification hopes alive when they played out a goalless draw with Manchester City in midweek.
That result means that Manchester United will secure their spot in the top four if they win their remaining games in the Premier League.
The Red Devils face tricky trips to Tottenham and Arsenal before the season is out as their top-four hopes are set to be put to the test.
But former Liverpool star Carragher feels that Mourinho is the master of getting positive results from tricky games and feels that Manchester United are still one of the leading candidates to finish in the top four.
Writing in his column for The Daily Mail, Carragher said: “Jose Mourinho has had six 0-0 draws away to the top six since he returned to English football in 2013 and knows how to throw a blanket over the tightest contest.
“You can bet, for certain, he will do something similar at the Emirates and White Hart Lane to what he did at the Etihad Stadium.
“United will need to win one of those games. But they are very much in the fight for the top four and anyone who thinks that a couple of tough away trips will see them fail to last the distance is not looking at the whole picture.”
Manchester United take on Swansea at Old Trafford on Sunday.
