Jose Mourinho has reiterated his stance that Manchester United will be back in the top four by the turn of the year.
The Red Devils were starting to show shoots of recovery, putting together a five-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League as well snatching a crucial victory against Juventus in the Champions League.

However, they were put to the sword by their Manchester rivals in the derby a fortnight ago, leaving them seven points adrift of the top four. But despite admitting that it is a ‘big gap’, Jose Mourinho has said that he thinks his side can be back in the race for the top four by the end of December.
“It is a big gap,” Mourinho told the press ahead of his sides clash against Crystal Palace tomorrow at Old Trafford.
“But until the end of December, there are eight games to play in the Premier League. We are speaking about 24 points for us all to fight for. I believe we are going to be there.”
