Manchester United currently trail in the race for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season and have work to do if they’re to achieve their goal. For Jose Mourinho’s side to be successful, they’ll have to do these five things.
Win their games in hand
Manchester United may currently be outside of the top-four but they have control over their fortune, as they have two games in hand over fourth-placed Liverpool. Therefore, United need to ensure they use this to their advantage and return from both fixtures will full points.
It won’t be easy, especially as they face rivals Manchester City in one of those games, but the Red Devils need to ensure they emerge victorious in that match as it will give them a real boost- putting them right behind their cross-city rivals.
Their over game in hand against Southampton, which is yet to be arranged, will also be a stern test but it’s another game where a win is necessary.
