Former Manchester United manager David Moyes has made a bold prediction for Jose Mourinho side by the end of November.
The Red Devils opened their 2018-19 Premier League campaign with three points following their 2-1 victory over Leicester City at Old Trafford on Friday night.
Jose Mourinho side will travel to Brighton in the weekend before hosting Tottenham at Old Trafford on 27 August.
They will then take on Burnley, Watford, Wolverhampton, West Ham United and Newcastle United before facing Chelsea on October 10 at Stamford Bridge.
Therefore, Moyes backed the Red Devils to be top of the Premier League at the end of November.
“I agree to the point that it doesn’t matter who you’re playing in the Premier League, they’re tough. But if you look at the games that Manchester United play in the first nine or 10 games, you’re not playing a City, an Arsenal, a Chelsea in that period,” Moyes told BBC Sport.
“I wonder if Jose’s (Jose Mourinho) words the other day, ‘Let’s wait until the end of November’, I would be very surprised if United weren’t top of the league come to the end of November. I think that the fixtures that have come out for them and the way it’s worked, I think will give them every opportunity to be there.”
Moyes, who managed the club following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement, signed a six-year contract with United in May 2013.
However, the former Everton boss was dismissed on 22 April 2014 and was awarded £5m in compensation following the sacking.
