Former Manchester United skipper Gary Neville has said he is not yet convinced of the club’s credentials for a top 4 finish due to lack of consistency in our game this season.

Speaking on Sky Sports after the 2-0 Premier League win at Chelsea, the former full-back said:

“I could swing from week to week, I could say Manchester United [now] because I feel quite confident with what they’ve done.

“But I could be sat here this time next week and United have lost, Chelsea have won, and we’re back to where we were. Neither team give me ultimate belief and faith, I don’t think you can trust either of them yet to go on a run towards the end of the season.

“What I would say is the back three tonight looked decent and the midfield, with Nemanja Matic, Fred and Bruno Fernandes, looked as good as it has done all season so there are positives for United tonight, I think they can be the ones to leave feeling better.”

Next up for United is a tricky clash at home against 19th-placed Watford.
