Andy Cole believes that securing a second-place finish in the Premier League this season would represent progress for Manchester United.

The Red Devils have struggled to find consistent enough form to launch a title challenge, with Manchester City on the brink on being confirmed as Premier League champions.

However, Manchester United have shown considerable improvement with their Premier League form this term in their second campaign under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are currently in second place in the table after having ended up in sixth place in Mourinho’s first season in charge at the club.

And former Red Devils striker Cole believes that finishing in second place in the table this season would represent significant progress, as they have not finished that highly since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement back in 2013.

Speaking to MUTV, Cole said: “If we do finish second then we can look at it as a positive, even though finishing second is not what everybody wants to see at Manchester United.

“But it is a positive compared to last season.”

Manchester United head into their crunch trip to Manchester City this weekend knowing that the Citizens can win the Premier League title with victory over their bitter local rivals at The Etihad.

The Red Devils warmed up for the game with a 2-0 victory over Swansea City in the Premier League at Old Trafford last weekend.
