Manchester United’s top four hopes are hanging on by the most finest of margins, thanks to a Juan Mata goal to give his side all three points away at Carrow Road. Norwich put up a fight, but one lapse in concentration was all it took for Louis van Gaal’s men to grab all three points.
Now attentions focus on the Etihad Stadium tomorrow afternoon, when City will go head-to-head with Arsenal in an huge mage which could decide United’s top four fate.
The Old Trafford side desperately need a favour from Arsene Wenger and Arsenal, with a draw enough to put United in control of their own destiny.
After the game today, Louis van Gaal had a joke about being an Arsenal fan for a day.
“I’m more or less tomorrow, indeed, a Gunners fan but it will be a tough game between these kind of teams.” Louis van Gaal told reporters.
At the end of the day, Manchester United are still relying on others to help them out. If somehow the club manage to finish in the top four it’ll feel like Van Gaal is merely papering over the cracks which isn’t good enough for a club of our stature.
