McAteer: Manchester United don’t deserve to be Premier League leaders

It appears Manchester United surge to the top of the Premier League table is not going down well in the red of Merseyside.

Former Liverpool player Jason McAteer does not think we have been the best team in England this season despite being three points ahead of the Reds.

“As far as Manchester United sitting top of the table, I do think it’s a false position,” he told Sky Sports News.

“Burnley gave them a tough game but they came through it and showed a bit of resilience. There is a bit of team spirit coming at Manchester United.

“But Ole hasn’t dealt with what other teams have dealt with, in terms of a lot of injuries this season. He’s had a lot of players to pick from…

“Come the end of the season, I think Liverpool and Manchester City will be fighting it out. I think Manchester United will drop off.

“When you look at their results, when they have played the likes of RB Leipzig, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Arsenal, they haven’t come through those games.

“It just tells me, when the big occasion comes, can Manchester United actually do it?”

Next up for the club is a big clash against Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield on Sunday. A win over the Reds will see us move six points at the top as our Premier League title challenge gains much-needed momentum.
