A former Manchester United defender, Gary Neville, has given conditions for the club to finish in the second position on the Premier League table this season.
Neville said Man United would finish in the second position this term behind Liverpool if they can win their game in hand.
The ex-England international said this after Man United defeated Leeds United 6-2 at Old Trafford on Sunday evening.
Man United finished in the third position on the Premier League table last season.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side is currently on the third position on the log with 26 points from 13 games and another game in hand.
“Their form is really good,” Neville said on Sky Sports’ The Gary Neville Podcast.
“They are scoring goals and coming back in matches. They played well [against Leeds]. Big game against Leicester on Boxing Day.
“But there’s something not right. But when you look at where they are in the league and they can go two points behind Liverpool. If you had said at the start of the season that they would be in a position to go two points behind Liverpool with a game in hand coming into Christmas you would have absolutely snapped anyone’s handoff.
“Everyone thought City and Liverpool were way ahead and for Manchester United, it was about potentially trying to close the gap.
“But no one thought they would ever be in a position to be so close, but they’ll end up second in the league if they can win their game in hand.”
