Premier League 2016/17 table: Super Computer predicts end of season final places

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has been urged to relinquish the shackles in order to turn his Premier League flops into genuine title challengers.

The Belgium worldwide scored a match-winning brace as Chelsea defeated Manchester City 2-1 last night, taking his season tally to 13 goals for the Premier League champions-elect.

The Reds sit third and are six points clear of Arsenal and Manchester United, who both have two games in hand.

Liverpool were 2-0 winners against second-placed Tottenham Hotspur before a 3-1 victory over Arsenal to cement their place in the top four.

But Neville believes Arsenal and United will now find it hard to break back into the top four.

"I think it will have to be a gradual improvement similar to when I was playing under (Gerard) Houllier and (Rafa) Benitez when we built to a title challenge. It will be hard for Tottenham to catch Chelsea and I don't see it happening", he said.

'So numerous United games, they should have won and could have won.

The 18-year-old has stood out in the Blues' Under-18s side this season, helping the team reach the FA Youth Cup final, where they will face Manchester City.

"I think, with the position they're in, Liverpool would be really disappointed if they didn't make it and I think it would be a big blow if they don't finish in the top four".

He said:"I think Manchester City will get in there and Liverpool will be the other team. I think with Klopp and Liverpool it's more of a building process than just splashing the cash".

"The fixtures and the way they're laid out is important". If you like at the fixtures they've got, it is so tough.
