Manchester United have been playing some very easy on the eye football recently, with Jose Mourinho’s men enjoying a nice unbeaten run in the Premier League. Currently, they sit sixth in the table but the improvement is there for all to see.
At this point in time, United sit four points off a place in the top four, but with twenty games to go and sixty points still to play for, one of their former players (now pundit) fancies them for Champions League qualification via league position.
That man is Ray Wilkins, who played for Manchester United in the early eighties.
“Yeah I think United will finish in the top four,” Wilkins is quoted as saying by talkSPORT (via the Daily Star).
“I think we are in for a real classic end of the season I really do. Once you’re on a roll at Old Trafford, that roll will only get bigger and bigger and bigger.”
“It appears at this moment in time it’s just changing again whereby they’re putting teams under an immense amount of pressure and creating a load of chances.”
“Therefore I expect United to be there.”
You have to say that over the last couple of months our performances have dragged us back into contention, and when you have players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and balls being fed into him by the likes of Paul Pogba you will always have a chance.
There is a sense of the ‘United of old’ are slowly finding their feet again at Old Trafford, and although there is a long way to go, as a Manchester United fan we’re definitely back on the right track.
Credit has to go to Jose Mourinho for that. If we can somehow muster a top four finish alongside a trophy of some kind – that would be a hugely successful season in my eyes.
