Man United’s expectations, according to Murphy, “have to be higher.”

“The only thing I can say about [Manchester] United is that this is how far they’ve come, which is a shame because they’re a wonderful club,” Murphy told talkSPORT.

“However, they were enjoying their win at Leeds – which secured fourth place for the time being – as if they had won the title.”

“All right, passion and emotion — I get it. But this is Manchester United. Okay, they’ve moved up to the fourth place. Congratulations, boys, on your victory at Leeds, who have conceded the second-most goals in the Premier League.

Danny Murphy also noted that Man United has spent the most in the League in recent times and need to do better.
