Paul Robinson thinks Manchester United will “be looking at a top six finish this year” and gives Premier League top four prediction.
Red Devils are sitting in 9th place of the league table, five points behind the leaders Tottenham, while Liverpool and Chelsea follow them to make the current top three. Manchester City, meanwhile, are in 11th place on the list.
“Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea are your top four, I think, in any order,” Robinson said via The Metro.
“I can’t see Manchester United, Everton, Arsenal or any of those other clubs finishing in the Champions League places.
“You look on paper and their team isn’t anywhere near the level of those four. I don’t put Man United anywhere near that bracket.
“They’ll be looking at a top six finish this year. It’s strange when you think that we’re talking here about Man United.
“The biggest supported club in the world and one of the biggest clubs in the world, and the best that they can hope for this year is a fifth-place finish with a trophy.
“I think realistically that’s the best they can achieve this year with the players they’ve got and the way they’re performing. There are at least four other clubs that will finish above them in the league this year.”
