Pundit Matt Le Tissier has predicted who he thinks will finish in the top seven of the Premier League this season and Manchester United are at the bottom of the pile.

After winning their opening three matches, the Red Devils have endured a disappointing run of form under new manager Jose Mourinho, having won just one league game in their last seven.

Their 0-0 draw with Burnley has left them eight points off arch rivals Manchester City who currently top the table on goal difference.

After his initial good start, star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic has not found the net in his last six league appearances and world-record signing Paul Pogba has only scored once in nine games and is still waiting for his first assist.

“When you think about the money Manchester United have spent it’s just not good enough from Jose Mourinho,” Le Tissier explained to Sky Sports.

“They’re eight points off the top already and you’re now looking at what they’re going to spend again in January, so there’s still a lot of progress to be made.”

The Southampton legend has predicted that City will come top by the end of the season but believes that the remaining top four positions could be anyone’s between Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham and Liverpool and after their initial difficulty, he has placed his old club in sixth place.
