Kleberson on the north London derby, problems at Manchester United and Marcus Rashford

AS THE Premier League approaches a nail-biting conclusion, Tottenham and Arsenal face off in a battle to decide the top-four this Thursday.

While Manchester United end their season at home to Crystal Palace this weekend.

Paddy Power caught up with former United midfielder Kleberson this week to get his thoughts on the north London derby and the troubles at United.

Conte's side trail Arteta's side by four points, and the Brazilian reckons that Spurs will pip Arsenal to a top four spot.

“If Tottenham play the same way as they did against Liverpool, Arsenal are going to find it very hard to win the game, he said"

"Tottenham defended well but it was a completely different game and it’s going to be interesting to see how they get on against Arsenal."

“Before the Liverpool game, I was convinced that Arsenal would win this game, but having seen the way Spurs played, I now have different thoughts about how it’s going to go.”

The FA Cup winner has also given his take on the current problems at United

During the 4-0 defeat to Brighton last weekend, chants of "you're not fit to wear the shirt" rang out around the Amex Stadium.

Kleberson believes that the chants are not accurate,

“Manchester United is a big club with a huge fan base and I don’t agree with the fans who say that the players aren’t fit to wear the shirt, '' he added.

If a player goes to United, it’s because they have quality, they’re good players.

“It’s too easy for fans to point fingers [at specific players] when the team isn't doing well and blame certain players. It’s not helpful for the players.”

One of the players that has come under fire this season is Marcus Rashford for his abject displays

The 42-year-old believes that Rashford could have had his head turned by another English club, if they were to come in for him

“I really want Marcus Rashford to stay at United for another season, but I don’t know if his head is really there. There might be some opportunities elsewhere and if another English club comes in for him, he might be interested in moving away.

Manchester United play on Sunday in Ralf Rangnick's final game.
