Koeman: United won’t make top four

The gloves are off, and Everton manager Ronald Koeman has made what he thinks about Manchester United’s prospects of finishing in the top four this season.

The Toffees are vying for one of the coveted European position places, and Koeman has stated he doesn't think United can cope without Swedish talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who was recently ruled out for the rest of the season.

"I cannot see Manchester United finishing in the top four," the Dutchman was quoted by the Express.

"Zlatan's injury looks bad and when I look at the amount of matches they are having to play this season, I can see them missing the top four.

"I have not been impressed by the way they play," added Koeman.

Jose Mourinho's men, whose main focus is the Europa League, have a tough run-in in the league which sees them still to travel to the Etihad, the Emirates and White Hart Lane.
