Paul Ince has backed Manchester United to secure their place in the Premier League top-six, despite losing three of their opening six games this term.
The Red Devils are currently sitting in 15th place of the league table, following their 1 – 0 defeat to Arsenal last weekend. Recently both the team and the manager have been under criticism, while there have been doubts over the club’s successful finish of the season.
However, Ince still believes his former side will manage to reach the top-six, despite the latest errors.
“I still think United finish in the top six this season,” he said.
“It’s that inconsistency that’s the problem. You look at the way they played against PSG and you think they should absolutely be in the top four.
“But you look at how they played against Arsenal and think they’d be lucky to finish in the top six.
“That’s the way it is at Manchester United at the minute.
“A lot of things aren’t clicking at this moment in time but there’s still a long way to go this season and I think United can expect to be right up there at the end of the campaign.”
