Former Manchester United defender turned footballing pundit Gary Neville has given an extremely worrying prediction for what could be in store for his old side as they enter the business end of the season.
Despite currently sitting second in the Premier League table, United’s domestic position is arguably as false as Wayne Rooney’s hair.
After returning back to action in Wednesday’s match against Crystal Palace, United travelled to London off the back of two 0-0 draws on the bounce.
In what is becoming an extremely worrying (and boring) habit, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was forced to watch on as his side played out yet another drab goalless draw.
Whilst commentating live on Sky Sports on the match, ex-Red Devil Neville offered his thoughts on what could be in store for United as they enter the season’s final stretch.
“United are sleepwalking into a top-four race,” Neville said. “It could be so much more comfortable.”
Neville’s comments will undoubtedly be at the forefront of fans’ minds, especially considering it wasn’t too long ago they were considered potential title challengers.
Now, however, the Red Devils will be nervously casting an eye over their shoulder as the likes of Chelsea, West Ham, Liverpool and Everton remain firmly in the hunt for a place in next season’s Champions League.
