Manchester Utd have been pushed out to 11/5 for a top 4 finish in the Premier League following a disastrous 2-0 away defeat to West Ham on weekend.
The Red Devils were simply outplayed by a West Ham side, with Andriy Yarmolenko and Aaron Creswell both finding the net for the Hammers, a result which saw Utd drop down to eighth in the Premier League – a result which saw increased pressure placed on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Whataretheodds.co.uk spokesman Spencer James commented:
“Its clear that Manchester Utd have not really pushed on since sacking Jose Mourinho and in fairness Solksjaer has been left with a thread bear squad. With Marcus Rashford injured, in reality you are left with youngsters Mason Greenwood and Daniel James to provide the attacking threat, which seems a little unfair considering the amount of money being spent at Old Trafford so far this season”
The result has left many Utd fans and pundits scratching their heads as to what is going wrong at the club, with former captain and Utd legend Roy Keane commenting:
” Some of these players – they’re just not good enough for Manchester United…”
With Manchester City and Liverpool some way out in front of the chasing pack in terms of quality, it looks like there are only two places available already for a top 4 finish. Arsenal look to be in with a great chance, winning 3-2 over Aston Villa despite being a man down, while Brendan Rogers and his Leicester side continue to impress, with the Foxes now occupying third sport in the table.
