The Baby Faced Assassin has helped close the gap on the Premier League’s top four since taking charge, although it still looks unlikely that the Red Devils will secure a top four finish.
Today, their hopes were given a major boost as Arsenal were beaten by Everton at Goodison Park. The game was a close one but The Gunners’ poor away record continues to keep us in with a chance.
For United, the importance of qualifying for the Champions League cannot be understated. Playing in the premiere competition is what attracts the world-class players to Old Trafford, if that isn’t an option, not only will we struggle acquiring talents, but we could also lose stars too…
We’re still sitting in sixth but once again Arsenal are back within touching distance, however, Chelsea remain ahead of us by a couple of points as well.
For now, attentions turn to this season’s Champions League. United host FC Barcelona in the first leg of their double-header, who knows, we could secure our Champions League berth by winning this edition of the tournament…!
