Sam Allardyce makes Manchester United and Chelsea Premier League top six prediction
Manchester United could drop out of the Premier League’s top six for the first time since their disastrous season under David Moyes.
United are currently eighth in the table after one win, two draws and two defeats this season, with many pundits doubting the credentials of Solskjaer as manager, as well as the strength in depth at Old Trafford.
Leicester and Everton have both started the season brightly and are third and sixth respectively, ahead of United in the league, as the action takes a hiatus for the international break.
“I think Everton should break into the top six and if they’re going to break in, this is the season to do it,” he said.
“United have gone even younger than Chelsea have with their squad this year; they’ve trimmed their squad down to the smallest number of experienced players I’ve probably ever seen.
“I don’t think Wolves will do it because they’re in Europe for the first time in a long, long time and that will take a toll on the squad, as we saw with Burnley last year. It’ll be difficult for them.”
