According to the former Scottish footballer, “I don’t think it is no. I think no question they get in the top four.
Nicol, 55, said ESPN FC: “I’m sure that top four isn’t Mourinho’s ambition. I’m certainly sure it isn’t the board or the owner’s ambition but the fact is that for me City are ahead of this team, Chelsea the defending champions are ahead and Spurs, you can’t count them out.
They’ve been as consistent in the Premier League over the last two or three season as any other team without winning the Premier League.
So Manchester United definitely top four but one of the favorites for the Premier League? I don’t think so” he concluded.
