Gary Neville is still tipping Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur to finish third and fourth in the Premier League table this season.
Manchester United slumped to their first Premier League defeat of the season on Saturday afternoon when they were beaten 2-1 by Crystal Palace in front of their home fans.
The Red Devils have only taken four points from their opening three games to leave them off the pace in the race for the Premier League title.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been charged with steering Manchester United back into the Premier League’s top four this season after they finished sixth last term.
Tottenham Hotspur are also aiming to maintain their place in the top four this season after they finished in fourth place under Mauricio Pochettino last term.
And despite Saturday’s defeat by Crystal Palace, former Red Devils star Neville has insisted that he is still expecting to see Manchester United finish in the top four along with Tottenham Hotspur this season.
Speaking during Sky Sports‘ coverage of Arsenal’s trip to Liverpool FC on Saturday, Neville said: “Success for Arsenal this season would be getting into the top four.
“[But] I’ve gone for Manchester United to [finish fourth]. Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham will be the top three.”
Manchester United will return to Premier League action next weekend when they take on Southampton away from home on Saturday lunchtime.
