That is the opinion of Steve Nicol, who believes that no side involved are making a strong case for finishing in the Premier League top four.
Arsenal, Tottenham, United and Chelsea are all scrambling for a Champions League spot but there have been some woeful performances from all lately.
United have been desperately poor recently, losing seven in their last nine encounters but today presents their best opportunity to break into the top four.
Chelsea are in town and a win over the Blues at Old Trafford would see them go level with Maurizio Sarri’s side.
But former Liverpool star Nicol does not believe the Red Devils will get anything out of the match because of their inferior midfield.
“It’s hard to turn around and say yes [a team will take command in top-four battle],” Nicol said.
“We’ve actually been sat here for the last three or four weeks and we’ve been constantly asked ‘who’s going to be in the top four and who’s not going to make it?’.
“And every time we make a decision, somebody goes and throws a result in that completely upsets the applecart.
“But, the good thing about this game is Manchester United are so bad and so awful and not unpredictable quite frankly because where’s a performance or a win coming from?
“And that’s why I can confidently say, I’m 100 per cent backing Chelsea here.
“I don’t remember the last time United actually dominated a midfield.
“We’ve been criticising Chelsea’s midfield, but this Chelsea side are far better in the middle of the park, for me, than United.
“And I think that’s why ultimately they’ll win the game Chelsea.
“The midfield will be in their control.”
