Former Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand, has said the Red Devils will finish behind Arsenal and Manchester City in the Premier League this season.
United’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace last week, means they are now within three points of second-placed City.
Ferdinand believes at this point that United is all but guaranteed a Champions League spot.
But he doubts the team will overtake Arsenal or City.
“I think Manchester United will finish in the top four quite comfortably now.
“A lot of the other clubs around them aren’t as consistent as them, while United have been picking up results.
“They’re still a bit off Arsenal and Manchester City, but I can see United finishing in that third spot in the Premier League this season, tying that up and really making that position their own,” Ferdinand told William Hill.
