Manchester United icon Denis Irwin believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have a huge chance to clinch a top four spot when the Premier League resumes this week. Despite many upbeat United predictions, amid the returns of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford from injury, Irwin is only cautiously optimistic about the restart.
Denis Irwin said “They don’t come much bigger than that, From their point of view, they will feel they have to win if they are to try to compete for that Champions League spot and it was due to come at a time when we go back two-and-a-half months, when we were flying and Spurs were missing Harry Kane and a couple of others. I know we were missing Pogba and Rashford but we would have gone into the game with loads of confidence. It’s different now, the first one in, and you never quite know. It’s a big game for us, it really is. The selection is down to Ole, isn’t it? The players have kept themselves fit all the time and been in training for a few weeks. So, hopefully, everyone is in the same boat. The match sharpness might not be there but both teams have had friendlies. You look at that first week or so and there are some big games there. It would be great if we won and got up and running; it really would give us huge confidence. I don’t like saying this but, on paper, if we get over that, you look at the next six or seven games favourably. But you know it’s not going to be like that. It’s going into the unknown again almost. It’s a big game and I’m just looking forward to football, in general, returning.”
