The month of February is set to be the biggest test yet for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Manchester United currently sit 5th in the Premier League and have progressed to the next stages of both the FA Cup and Champions League. This month, Manchester United will be playing matches in each competition.
- Fulham (A): Premier League
- PSG (H): Champions League
- Chelsea (A): FA Cup
- Liverpool (H): Premier League
- Crystal Palace (A): Premier League
So finally the real test begins. This month can make or break our season. Here’s my predictions for the next five fixtures!
Fulham (A) Premier League: 3-1 United
We beat them 4-1 when times were tough. I think United should win this game rather comfortably. If we don’t, our month will just get tougher!
PSG (H) Champions League: 2-1 United
I believe we have what it takes to beat PSG and we will. However, we still concede an away goal scored by a defensive mistake of course.
Chelsea (A) FA Cup: 1-0 United
Chelsea are very unpredictable this season and Stamford Bridge is an extremely difficult place to go to. However, I see us nicking a cheeky win to sweep London for the third time this season.
Liverpool (H) Premier League: 2-2 draw
Liverpool are second on the table behind City, with a game in hand. However, that game in hand is an away trip to Old Trafford. I want us to absolutely thrash them and shatter their title dreams but after tough games against PSG and Chelsea, I wouldn’t even mind a draw. Even a draw can be a major setback to their title hopes.
Crystal Palace (A) Premier League: 2-1 United
This game could be very tricky as Palace are notorious for taking points off of the top 6 teams. We’ll have to be cautious because they possess some serious threat on the flanks. But I feel we’ll still win the game.
So that was my prediction, albeit a very optimistic one, for the next 5 games. Either way, these are massive fixtures and Manchester United are a team built on playing these games. So hoping for a great month of football!
Fulham (A): 1 – 4
