Paul Scholes, Man Utd legend, believes two players can secure Erik ten Hag’s job with top-four performance.

The Daily and Sunday Express has highlighted Liverpool, Manchester City, and Arsenal as the frontrunners for the title this season. They are heavily tipped to make up the top three at the end of the season. Ahead of United’s trip to Villa on Sunday, Unai Emery’s side joined Tottenham in having a comfortable cushion in fifth and fourth place, respectively. Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s 29 per cent stake is expected to be ratified this month, and this has led to Ten Hag essentially interviewing for his own job ahead of a significant period of change under the INEOS banner.

Securing Champions League qualification is seen as crucial to convince United’s new hierarchy that Ten Hag is the right person to lead the club into a third season under his watch. A commentator expressed confidence in Manchester United’s prospects, stating that the club has the potential to win a lot of games and is capable of securing a top-four finish. The return of experienced players back into the team was seen as critical to their chances of achieving this goal. The addition of experienced players like Casemiro and Varane was highlighted as a significant boost to the team’s quality.

The commentator suggested that the presence of such players could provide a positive impact, even if they don’t always play, as it adds a level of assurance to the team. The significance of the upcoming match for United was also emphasized. A victory at Villa would help United close the gap on the top five teams by five points, while a defeat would leave them nine points adrift.
