While much of Ralf Rangnick's time at United over the next seven months will be about steadying the ship, there is no doubt that he is also auditioning for the job as the manager on a full-time basis too. With this in his mind, all attention falls on getting the club back within a Champions League spot at a bare minimum and potentially challenging for the title following a decent draw at Stamford Bridge to the league leaders.
The German is noted for cup runs more than anything else, as he headed to the semi-finals of the Champions League with Schalke, and was ironically knocked out by a Sir Alex Ferguson United side. He also got to the DFB-Pokal final with RB Leipzig only to lose to Bayern Munich, which as we all know, in Germany, is no shame.
Here, Rangnick is priced at 7/1 to get United into the top four by Christmas, for which they are currently five points off West Ham United, who sit fourth. The Red Devils will meet with fifth-placed Arsenal on Thursday, December 2nd, which may end up being the main match here, as Crystal Palace, Norwich City, Brentford, and Brighton & Hove Albion follow and they should beat those remaining sides.
The club are also priced at 16/1 to finish above Liverpool and Spurs, but the former seems unlikely. A bottom-half finish in 2021/22 and to win 0 trophies is priced at 18/1, while United are also priced at 28/1 to win the league next year and have Cristiano Ronaldo as the league's top scorer.
