Owen Hargreaves and Rio Ferdinand predicted a few weeks ago that Manchester United have the capacity to win their next ten league games due to a run of favourable fixtures. The Red Devils barely played two games before the prediction from Rio Ferdinand and Owen Hargreaves was floored. Ex-Manchester United players Owen Hargreaves and Rio Ferdinand unanimously agreed on BT Sports that the Red Devils should go on a run of ten straight wins.
In the first of the proposed ten games, Manchester United were battered by hosts and bottom team Norwich City who should have won the game. In the end, Cristiano Ronaldo scored the winning goal in the last fifteen minutes from the spot after he was deemed to have been fouled by Canaries right-back Max Aarons. The next two league games against London team Brentford and Brighton & Hove Albion were then postponed at the instance of the Red Devils due to the Covid-19 outbreak at the club.
Manchester United returned to action a day after Boxing Day at Newcastle United with the hope of making it three wins in a row and two wins on the bounce since the prediction from Ferdinand and Hargreaves. In the end, they were fortunate to come away with a 1-1 draw after Uruguayan striker EdinsonCavani scored in the final quarter after he was subbed on as he cancelled out the Newcastle opener from Frenchman Allan Saint-Maximin.
In their next two league games since the Magpies game, Manchester United beat Burnley 3-1 at home and lost 1-0 to Wolves at home.
