Former Arsenal star Charlie Nicholas has hit out at Manchester United, and can’t understand how the boring club are top of the league, as reported by the Express.
United have really fallen from grace since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson, and they still aren’t playing great football. They are grinding out results though, and find themselves atop the Premier League.
Nicholas is mystified as to how Louis van Gaal has guided his side to the summit without the team really performing that well, and highlighted David de Gea as the only player who has really stood out.
“Manchester United are top of the league but for the life of me I don’t know how,” Nicholas said.
“I can’t pin point a player that has been outstanding other than David De Gea, who has only played three games, and everyone else has just been decent.
“I did United before the Capital One Cup and you can tell the fans are bored.”

Hopefully their mediocrity eventually catches up with them, and we are able to topple the Red Devils. We are only three points behind the league leaders, and play host to them this weekend.
If other results go our way, then we could technically find ourselves top of the table come the end of the next round of games. With United boasting a far superior goal difference however, we will need to beat them convincingly if we want to overtake them.

We have to make sure we improve drastically on the performance we put on against Olympiacos this past Tuesday night, a feat we are more than capable of achieving.
