What Graeme Souness said of Manchester United's top-four chances

Graeme Souness has said that Manchester United, alongside Tottenham, Arsenal and West Ham will challenge for the Premier League top-four this season.

Man United are currently outside the top-four with 27 points from 16 league games. Arsenal are occupying the 4th spot with 32 points, having played two games more than the Red Devils.

West Ham sit in the 5th position with 28 points from 17 matches while Tottenham are also out of the top four, having played only 15 matches.

Souness believes the likes of West Ham, Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal will challenge for the 4th spot, behind the likes of Man City, Liverpool, and Chelsea.

The Liverpool legend refused to be carried away by Arsenal’s current position in the league. And would urge Mikel Arteta to improve his side’s away form.

‘Right now they’re [Arsenal] the best of the rest. The front three for me are considerably better than any of the other teams,’ Graeme Souness told Sky Sports.

‘But I’m sat between Man Utd, Arsenal, Spurs, maybe West Ham will think they’d be in that argument as well.

‘Fourth is within their reach [for Arsenal] but we’re only halfway through the season. They have to improve on their away form, that’s not good enough.

‘We’ve seen when they went to Liverpool a couple of weeks ago that the level that Liverpool play at and where [Arsenal] are right now is considerably different.

‘Yeah they have a chance of being fourth but Spurs will be in that argument, Man U will be in that argument, and West Ham I think can cause problems to anyone they play.’

Arsenal beat Leeds United 4-1 away from home on Saturday while Man United’s home game against Brighton was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the Manchester United camp.

Tottenham would host Liverpool at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
