Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has said that Manchester United are “a bit lucky” to be in the race for the Champions League next season.
United are level on points with fourth-placed Leicester City after a 2-0 win at Crystal Palace on Thursday.
United face Leicester in a final day showdown on the last day of the season but Mourinho said his former side are fortunate to be challenging for a top four place.
“If Manchester United does it, they will do it by playing very well in the second part of the season and when you play well, you deserve,” he told a news conference.
“On top of that, everyone knows that they were a bit lucky, more than one time, luck that others didn’t have, we didn’t have it for example that luck.”
