Sherwood makes huge prediction over Man Utd’s top four hopes

Tim Sherwood thinks Manchester United are now favourites to finish fourth in the Premier League this season.

The Red Devils beat Burnley 2-0 in the Premier League over the weekend, a result which saw United lift themselves up to fifth in the table.

United are currently four points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and one point ahead of Tottenham, who occupy sixth position.

And Sherwood thinks United will only improve this season and he sees them finishing fourth ahead of their rivals.

Sherwood, quoted in The Metro, said: “Out of the three we are talking about, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United, I would have them as favourites, I would have Manchester United as favourites.

“Because I think they are only going to improve. They need to get that level of consistency, they cannot suffer the performances they had against Watford – a team who couldn’t beat anyone – and then they get turned over.

“They are very good against the top teams, we are going to see that now.

“They’ve got Arsenal away, Wolves away, Man City at home, that’s normally when they are at their best, when a team comes out and plays against them and believes they can beat them.

“I believe Man United will counter attack those teams. I love those front players, what kills you is pace, when you line up against pace it frightens you to death as a manager and they have got it in abundance.

“But I think they’ve got a solid triangle there now, I think if [David] De Gea gets back to his best, [Victor] Lindelof has been outstanding in front and [Harry] Maguire looks like the player we saw at Leicester.

“That is massive for them if they can get the solidity for that defence.”
