Danny Murphy predicts where Man United are going to finish
Danny Murphy is tipping Man United to finish in the top four this season despite their stuttering start
Danny Murphy is tipping Manchester United to finish in the top four this season despite their stuttering start under Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils slumped to a surprise 3-2 loss to Brighton and Hove Albion in the top flight on Sunday as they suffered their first Premier League defeat of the season to leave them with three points from their opening two games.
Manchester United are aiming to at least be one of the main contenders for the Premier League title this season after they finished in second place in the table and without a trophy last term.
Jose Mourinho has found himself under pressure in recent weeks after the Red Devils’ failure to secure some of his top transfer targets in the summer window.
But despite their recent struggles Murphy admits that he is expecting to see the Red Devils secure a top-four finish under Mourinho this season.
Speaking in an interview with bwin, Murphy said: “There’s a lot of trouble going on at Manchester United, but I think they will still comfortably finish in the top four this season, no doubt about that.
“[Jose] Mourinho is too clever and too experienced a manager to not finish in the top four with this group of players.”
Manchester United have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
The Red Devils won both the Europa League and League Cup in Mourinho’s first season in charge of the Red Devils.
