MANCHESTER UNITED interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would have done a “remarkable” job if the Red Devils finish in the top four this season.
That is the verdict of BT Sport pundit and former Manchester United midfielder Robbie Savage.
United struck late to beat Southampton 3-2 at Old Trafford on Saturday.
The victory took the Red Devils above Arsenal and into fourth place in the Premier League table.
They are now just three points behind third-placed Tottenham after a run of 10 wins in 12 league matches under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
And Savage can see Manchester United continuing to rise up the table.
“If United get in the top four, Ole would have done remarkable considering where they were when he took the interim manager’s job,” Savage said.
“Listen, they could finish third.
“Who would have thought that 15 games ago? Incredible.”
Former Arsenal and Chelsea midfielder Steve Sidwell says Tottenham should be worried for their place in the Champions League qualification spaces.
Spurs drew 1-1 with Arsenal on Saturday, making it one point from their last three Premier League matches.
“Yeah they [Tottenham] should be [worried about their top-four spot],” Sidwell said.
“The form that they’re in at the moment.
“What’s that, two defeats, a draw, one point from three.
“The others are really gaining momentum. Every game now is massive.
“They’re in a bit of danger definitely.”
