Patrice Evra has named the clubs that will finish in the Champions League spots after Manchester United’s clash against Aston Villa.
Erik ten Hag’s men were booed off at halftime after goals from John McGinn and Leander Dendoncker made it 2-0 to the visitors.
However, United came out a different side in the second period as a brace from Alejandro Garnacho and a first Premier League goal for summer signing Rasmus Hojlund sealed a stunning 3-2 comeback win for the Red Devils.
The Frenchman said: “I think Liverpool, City, Arsenal and the fourth spot, United. I go for United.”
On the back of the win against Villa, United sit sixth in the league table, five points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur, who are currently occupying the fourth spot. However, the Old Trafford club have played more matches than the teams directly above them.
United boss Ten Hag was full of praise for Hojlund after the final whistle, he said: “Of course, I’ve had several talks with him and every time I’ve pointed out he has scored for Denmark a lot, he has scored in the Champions League, he has demonstrated his ability so you can do it, believe.
“I’m sure now he has the first goal he will score more…”
Ten Hag continued: “When a striker doesn’t score it’s a problem but he has a strong character, he is so solid, determined. He has a big personality. I think this is what a striker needs. When you keep investing, the goals will come.”
United will be back in Premier League action this weekend when they travel to the City Ground to take on Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon.
