Manchester United’s top-four hopes appear to be hanging by a thread following their derby-day loss to Manchester City.
Following their humiliating derby defeat on Sunday, Manchester United’s hopes of finishing in the top four appear to be hanging by a thread.
A 4-1 defeat at Manchester City, where the score could have been even higher, showed how thoroughly outclassed the Reds are right now. Their performance has not only damaged their pride, but the result has left a major dent in their hopes of claiming the final Champions League spot.
With three games in hand, the Gunners have a one-point advantage over Manchester United. When things go wrong, the Reds could be ten points behind the pace.
Uncertainty has arisen among Manchester United players after one of their teammates was dubbed “the teacher’s pet.”
Despite this, the race for fourth will only heat up in the coming weeks. The following is a comparison of Manchester United’s upcoming Premier League opponents.
When they beat Manchester City, Tottenham’s chances of finishing fourth were shattered by a loss to Burnley, which scuppered their chances. Antonio Conte has been linked with a departure after just a few months in charge due to the club’s poor form this season.
Just beating Tottenham is all that is needed for Manchester United to finish in the top four in the Premier League. If they don’t, their chances may be bleak.
Leicester City’s season has been a huge letdown after many predicted they’d finish in the top four this year. Because of their poor play this season, it appears as though Brendan Rodgers’ chances of being named manager of Manchester United have been effectively ended.
Injuries to key players haven’t helped them, but they’ve won back-to-back games against Burnley and Leeds in the last week. United, on the other hand, cannot afford any mistakes at this point.
Despite the appointment of Frank Lampard as manager, the Toffees are still in danger of relegation this season. Because they’ve spent so much money on players, that would be an even greater failure than United’s this season. ”
A noticeable improvement has been made in the performances of the team under Lampard’s leadership, and their performance against City was superior to what United displayed against the same opponents. Visiting Goodison Park is a serious undertaking.
After a brief resurgence under Dean Smith, Norwich have fallen back to the bottom of the table and look destined for relegation once more. Brentford’s 4-0 thrashing at the weekend reveals the current state of affairs for the team.
When it comes to United, this is a must-win game for them. Ralf Rangnick’s team would be embarrassed if they managed anything less than a victory.
United’s fate in the top four will likely be decided by their performance in the weeks leading up to their trip to the Emirates Stadium. The Reds lead the Gunners by one point, but they have three games in hand.
United still has a chance to win the league because they have three games remaining, including trips to Tottenham and Chelsea, as well as a home game against title contender Liverpool. If things go their way, a victory at the Emirates could give them the upper hand.

As a result of Saturday’s victory over Norwich, Brentford and manager Thomas Frank will be relieved to be out of the relegation zone for another season. In the weeks leading up to that, they were on the verge of a relegation to the Championship.
However, United should still take the three points. Their last encounter with the Bees in London earlier this year was a breeze for them; the same can be expected this time.
