Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Harry Redknapp has backed Manchester United to secure a top-four finish in the Premier League this season and also feels we can claim third-place ahead of Chelsea and Leicester City.

Currently, we are fifth in the table – level on points with Wolves and two behind Chelsea, and three points behind Leicester City.

Redknapp said on MUTV: “I couldn’t pick many worse games to play at this stage of the season. Man United want that top-four spot.

“I think Leicester are starting to struggle, there’s a real opportunity now. They’ve really hit a brick wall, haven’t they?’

“I certainly see United finishing in the top four this year.

“They’re in form, they’re playing well, I can’t see them finishing outside of the four. They could even finish third I think, the way it’s looking at the moment.

“Leicester are struggling. I never know what I’m going to get with Chelsea and, as I say, I think Man United will finish in the top four.

“I think United will be in the top four, I think they’ll push on. They’ve made a couple of signings in the last year or so that have made a big difference.

“[Bruno] Fernandes and Harry Maguire gave them real backbone. [Aaron Wan-Bissaka]’s come in and done well.”
