Ryan Giggs believes that Manchester United have all but secured a top-four finish in the Premier League this season.

The Red Devils bounced back to winning ways in the top flight on Sunday afternoon when they came from a goal down to earn a 2-1 win over Chelsea FC at Old Trafford.

That victory lifted Jose Mourinho’s men back up above Liverpool FC and into second place in the Premier League table as they bid to try and qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Manchester United ended up in sixth place last season but still managed to book their place in the Champions League by winning the Europa League last time around.

And former Manchester United midfielder Giggs feels sure that the Red Devils are on course to at least finish in the top four of the Premier League this season.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Giggs said: “Obviously it was a big win at the weekend, I think that more or less secured that top-four space.

“But it changes all the time. They’ve got Liverpool in a couple of weeks, that’s a big game.

“They’re looking good. If they secure top four, if they have a good run in the Champions League and win the FA Cup, it’s a step forward again from last year.”

Manchester United will be aiming to make it back to back wins in the Premier League on Monday night when they travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace.

The Red Devils will also look to progress through to the quarter-finals of the Champions League by beating Sevilla at Old Trafford later this month.
