Paul Merson has explained why Manchester United will not finish in the Premier League’s top four positions this campaign.
“Manchester United’s opening-day win over Chelsea papered over the cracks,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“The second game at Wolves they were good in the first half. And then, on Saturday, they were Manchester United.
“You cannot lose at home to Crystal Palace. I’ve said all along that they won’t finish in the top four and I haven’t seen anything to suggest otherwise in the first three games of the season.”
