Man Utd No.2 expects more shock results before seasons end

Assistant manager Mike Phelan insists there will be more twists and turns before the end of the season. after Manchester United slipped up at home to Aston Villa, reports the Manchester Evening News. The Reds missed the opportunity to move level on points with top of the table Chelsea when Gabriel Agbonlahor scored the only goal at Old Trafford.

But Phelan believes that all their title rivals will drop more points this season because of the strength of the Premier League.

"The competition is of a higher standard this year," he said.

"There are a lot more good players about and plenty of good teams who are very well organised.

"There is nothing easy and every team will drop points.

"Nobody likes to lose but last week we were five points behind Chelsea, now it is three, so in that respect we are a little bit better off."
