Jose Mourinho explains why Man United could potentially still finish outside the top four

Manchester United Football Club have made a scintillating start to the Premier League season, with Jose Mourinho’s men loving life at the top of the table alongside Manchester City. But, in typical, professional manner, Mourinho is under no illusions at this point in time.

He knows that the top flight in England is the toughest in the world to succeed in, and whilst speaking to the media, he has told reporters that United have to remain grounded. Mourinho then added that at this point in time, there is still no guarantee that his side will finish in the top four.

‘Nothing happened yet. Last year the season started much harder and ended very well, this year it started very well and we don’t know how it will end.’ Jose Mourinho told Portuguese media outlet Record, as per The Metro.

‘In another league, it could be said that a team that starts with seven wins and a draw would almost mean the title.”

‘But in England, it doesn’t mean anything, not even that we will finish in the first four places.”

We’re still so early on in the title race and literally, anything can happen. We made an excellent start to the season last term and look how that turned out. Heck, City won their first ten games across all competitions and they ended up finishing fourth in the table.

Yes, it’s great watching us play at this moment in time and we certainly look very good. But, we have to remain patient. We’re seven games in and there are still thirty-one to play with some tough assignments to come. Liverpool away is next up, and that’ll really be a good test to see just how far we’ve come from last season.
