Supercomputer predicts Man Utd's season – so how likely is quadruple after Paul Scholes' bold claim? | The Sun
20th February 2023

PAUL SCHOLES reckons Manchester United can win a quadruple this season.

But just how likely is the historic feat for Erik ten Hag’s brave battlers?

The Dutchman has done a grand job since taking charge at Old Trafford last summer, leading his side to third in the table.

United are just five points behind Arsenal after comfortably beating Leicester 3-0 at the weekend.

And they are confident of making strong progress in both the FA Cup and Europa League.

But Ten Hag can win his first trophy on Sunday when United take on Newcastle in the Carabao Cup final.

And Scholes feels victory at Wembley could spark an incredible run ending with United lifting all four trophies.

However, Bettingexpert's Supercomputer BETSiE has crunched the numbers and tallied the tables.

And it reckons United have just a 0.04 per cent chance of getting their hands on the quad.

In the Premier League, Arsenal still have a game in hand on the Red Devils, while rivals Man City occupy second place.

So therefore the odds of United winning their first Premier League title since 2013 is, in the eyes of the Supercomputer, extremely unlikely.

And the Red Devils are predicted to finish in their current position of third.

United have also been given very low odds of a Carabao, FA Cup and Europa League treble, with the boffin PC tipping them at just 1.56 per cent.

However, should their sights be lowered to a double, United have an 8.23 per cent shot at winning the Carabao Cup and Europa League.

On the European front, they are currently level at 2-2 with Barcelona after the first leg of their Europa League play-off.

Manchester United's chances are better should they target a domestic cup double of the Carabao and FA Cup with an 11.72 per cent chance.

The Red Devils host West Ham in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup.

But considering the last trophy United won was the 2017 Europa League under Jose Mourinho, any success in any competition will provide just cause for celebration amongst fans eager to see the return of Sir Alex Ferguson’s glory years.
