Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes is confident that Josè Mourinho‘s side can reach the third spot at the end of this campaign.
The Red Devils are climbing up the table and recently took up the 6th spot with 48 points.
Speaking to The Daily Mail, Scholes said: “It’s been a massive improvement from what we’ve seen in the last couple of years. The first two or three months weren’t great but they’ve turned it around. There’s a way of playing that the fans are enjoying.
“The only problem is they’re still sixth, which after being in such good form is a bit of a worry. But I watch them now and have no doubt they’ll finish in the top four.
“They’re playing the best out of the top six with Chelsea and you have to fancy them to finish second or third. Probably third if I had to nail it down.
“They’re creating more than enough chances — 20-odd a game or something — but the conversion rate needs to improve. If it had been anything like decent, they would have been up there challenging Chelsea.”
Here’s the final Premier League table, according to Paul Scholes: “Chelsea, City, United and then it’s between Arsenal and Liverpool” he ended.
