Manchester United must be considered top four favourites

Manchester United picked up another vital Premier League victory on Sunday with a comfortable 2-0 win away to Burnley.

First half strikers from Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney gave the Red Devils a win that puts them within touching distance of the top four.

It capped off a fine week for the club after seeing off Chelsea the Sunday prior, before qualifying for the semi-finals of the UEFA Europa League with a victory over Anderlecht.

With injuries to key players Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo, the good form continues for Jose Mourinho’s men.

As this stat from Squawka shows, it’s form that surely makes them favourites to finish in the top four come the end of the Premier League season.

No-one else in Europe harder to beat right now and even if they have to grind their way into UEFA Champions League qualifying positions, you’d fancy them to do it.

It won’t be easy, they have massive fixtures away to Arsenal, Spurs and Manchester City in the coming weeks after all. However, if they can maintain this unbeaten streak to the end of the season, the likes of Liverpool may finally be overhauled.
