Can Manchester United beat Leicester City or Chelsea to a top-four spot? | Premier League


Manchester United are in fine form in the Premier League since the arrival of Bruno Fernandes, and the ESPN FC crew weigh up whether Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side can finish the season in a top-four spot. Don Hutchison praises Fernandes for raising the level of his teammates in the Red Devils’ 2-0 win vs. derby rivals Manchester City, but Steve Nicol still thinks this Man United side is a far cry from it past glories.

  1. As a pundit u should know that their is a difference between possession football and attacking football I don't blame u guys u call football soccer

  2. United doesn't need top 4 the way Chelsea and Leicester need it. Let them have top 4, United don't need it.

  3. whats next we won because we our players wore shoes..what is wrong with this guy, current MUTD team vs Current Man City team quality ia not the same

  4. Stevie… You're a great progressional… Please stop embarrassing your legacy with these types of comments. Why are you speaking of the old Manchester United and how they played when the current team is the current team… C'mon… You sound like a pundit on his first day in the hot seat

  5. More hatred toward United from Steve united could be at the top of the table and he would still be hate united. Funny 😂

  6. Steve Nicol is a serial United hater.. always if this idiot is on the show he cant be neutral and look at what is going on right now

  7. Nicols is basically the piers morgan of punditry, he thinks his own word is gospel but doesn’t realise that literally everyone who listens to his opinions think he’s just a biased old fool.

  8. Utd are still in a rebuild of the squad. For now they need to do whatever they needed to get results.
    I have to partially disagree with Steve Nicol because utd were always associated with counter-attacking football with pace out wide. They would defend for parts of games and push on at strategic points. But he's right that they used to be stronger in possession but they weren't often up against teams as possession based as this City team.

  9. Steve Nicol bias as usual but chelsea have city, liverpool and wolves to play, all top sides. We have spurs and leciester away, those matches will be tough, there is also sheffield but they are a defensive team and without henderson we can beat them

  10. When United have a better away record than at home but still stevie thinks the opposite, people should calm down, the guy has been biased since day one, everything related to United: Players, coaches, the team, everything is wrong or bad accd to him.

  11. Even though Chelsea played very well against Everton I don't think they'll finish top4. They are yet to play City, Wolves away and Leicester which even though is an FA CUP competition is an away game which will be hard on players. MOREOVER I think Chelsea are still to play those teams around relegation which will make this young Chelsea side a good run for the money.

    So for me I think United will or can finish 4th (even 3rd) if Leicester drop points and Wolves 5th. Chelsea for me will finish 6th.

  12. What did Liverpool play against Atletico Madrid and Watford ? Attack or defend? Answer it biased and partial Nicole . Yet Liverpool lost 😂😂😂

  13. stupid pundits I will laugh at you after the next 6 gamas do you actually look at the games all 3 teams have before talking stupid?

  14. Steve Nicol Man Utd don't even need top 4 cause they gonna win Euro cup and then i want to see what you will have to say.

  15. Steve nicol acting like utd won the game like the Celtic barcelona game . Pep got his tactics wrong and stevie never gives credit to utd or give a proper analyse of the games

  16. These guys didn't give Man UTD a chance against City & look what happened. Don't be so eager to jump the gun on Top 4 yet because almost all the teams in the Top 4 race are going to play someone else who is in this race. So it's not going to take much for things to change.
