Despite a bright start to the season, United find themselves sitting fourth on the standings, level on points with Man City who sit third.

The side has endured a poor run of results in recent days, losing their opening Champions League fixture before another defeat against West Ham in the EFL Cup and Aston Villa in the league.

According to Winterburn, the Manchester club need to be 'dirtier' in their performances if they are to secure results in the coming weeks.

The former Arsenal star further suggested the Red Devils are now in danger of coming up short against their rivals this term as they are unable to "dig out results."

"Manchester United were winning at home, so the Everton result has to be considered as dropped points," Winterburn told Paddy Power.
"If they’re going to be considered as a title-challenging side, this can’t continually happen, or they’re going to come up short."
"I think they’ll come up short anyway. The other three top teams will consistently dig out results when they need to," he added.
