Michael Owen is convinced that Manchester United will significantly step up their performances in the Premier League next season under Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils fell short in Mourinho’s first season in charge at the club as they ended up in sixth place in the Premier League table.

However, Manchester United still managed to secure their spot in next season’s Champions League by beating Ajax in the Europa League final on Wednesday night.

The Red Devils won the Community Shield, EFL Cup and Europa League in Mourinho’s first campaign in the Premier League but fell short in the top flight.

However, former Manchester United striker Owen is backing the Red Devils to step up their performances in the top flight considerably next season.

Speaking to BT Sport after Wednesday’s win in Stockholm, Owen said: “I don’t think they can do as badly as they did this season. Let’s not forget they focused on Europa League in the last few games.

“They will definitely put a better show on in Premier League [next season].”
