    Jose Mourinho tips Manchester United to break into Premier League top four


    Jose Mourinho has tipped Manchester United to break into the top four of the Premier League this season.

    The Red Devils, who travel to Bournemouth on Saturday, currently sit eighth in the table, five points off fourth-placed Arsenal and nine points behind leaders Manchester City.

    Mourinho's side have won just two of their last five in the league but he believes United's form will improve and they can close the gap on their rivals in the coming weeks.

    "When you are outside the top four I don't believe you should speak about the title," Mourinho told Sky Sports.

    "When you are in the top four - which I believe we are going to be - you can look up, see the distance, see the fixtures, you can look at the situation at that moment with injuries, suspensions and form, then you can feel it.

    "In this moment, we are outside the top four so I think the point now is to get the points we need and to try to be in a better position by the end of December, like I expect to be.

    "At this moment we have to focus on ourselves and do better. Until the end of December we have to focus on ourselves - in the potential we have, in the problems we have and in the qualities we have - and try to go.

    "In this moment we are outside the top four and we have to push hard and work hard to improve and try to get into this top-four position."
