Manchester United legend Gary Neville says that the Reds must finish the season with a good second if they want to challenge for the Premier league next season.
Manchester United beat the league leader 2-0 at Etihad stadium on Sunday as goals from Bruno Fernandes and Luke Shaw sealed the win for the Reds.
Skysports pundit Gary Neville believe that Ole Gunner Solskjaer side can build on the win and also a strong finish can boost their chances of closing gap next season.
“We know they’re not quite ready yet [to win the title] and that’s proven over the last couple of months but finish the season well,” the Sky Sports pundit said on the Gary Neville Podcast.
“I’ve talked today about finishing a poor second or a good second. A poor second is whereby it fades out towards the end of the season and becomes a bit of a poor league, City win it easily, and you end up 20 points off and you’re nowhere near still.
“Whereas actually if you can go and get within seven or eight points of City it will count for something. When Liverpool were chasing City down over that two or three, four years, they were getting closer every single year.
“These 10 games Man Utd have left are really important. They’ve got to finish a good second. They could be caught by Leicester and other teams but I do think they’re the second-best team in the country this season.
“If they’re not to finish second it would be a real problem but if they are going to finish second be a good second, not a poor second.”
