Paul Scholes confidently predicts where Man United will finish
The Manchester United legend believes Jose Mourinho's side will finish in the top four
Paul Scholes is confident that Manchester United will finish in the Premier League’s top four this season.
The Red Devils are in fifth place in the Premier League table and four points adrift of Liverpool, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot.
Manchester United signed four players in the 2016 summer transfer window following the appointment of Jose Mourinho as their new manager back in May.
The 20-time English champions missed out on a top-four finish last term which ultimately cost Louis van Gaal his job and prompted the appointment of Mourinho as their new manager.
The Red Devils will host Tony Pulis’s West Bromwich Albion side in their next Premier League game at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
Speaking to sportskeeda as quoted by The Manchester Evening News, former Manchester United midfielder Scholes backed Mourinho’s side to secure a top-four spot.
“I expect them to finish fourth, they have been on a fantastic run without making much progress in the league but you have to say that now the quality of the Premier League is back to where it should be there are four or five teams, probably five, are fighting for that top four,” Scholes said.
