Gary Neville, who used to play defense for Manchester United, thinks Erik ten Hag’s team will still finish ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League table this year. On Sunday afternoon at Wembley, in the Carabao Cup final, Ten Hag’s team beat Newcastle 2-0. Casemiro and Marcus Rashford scored for the Reds.
It was the first trophy United had won since 2017. But they still have a chance to win the Premier League, the Europa League, and the FA Cup this season. Even though a very unlikely quadruple is still possible, United’s manager has said that neither he nor his players are thinking about it.
Gary Neville forecasts the top three order of Manchester United, City, and Arsenal
The Reds are currently eight points behind the league-leading Arsenal in the Premier League, and Neville is worried that his old team won’t win the title this year. But Neville doesn’t think that United will finish behind the Gunners. Instead, the Sky Sports commentator says that Manchester City will win the league title in the end. He said that Ten Hag’s team could move up to second place at the end of the season and pass Arsenal to do so.
“That’s my inkling earlier in the season, what normally happens is one team gets so close they realise they can’t win it and then they just go like that in the last two or three games,” he said on The Overlap. “You lose two games and then all of a sudden someone else goes above you. I thought City would win the league and United would finish second two or three months ago.
