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

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. ITS MAN CITY. They have the best squad in the world. We beat them 2-0 and deserved the win. Nicol is awful.

  4. 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

  5. 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

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

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
