The Final Stretch

It’s all or nothing come Sunday.

United have looked a bit lackluster in the past few games. Having lost out on a possible trophy last Sunday and leaving it to Greenwood to earn a point against our former manager, United have put themselves in a precarious situation. In order to qualify for Champions League, Manchester United needs to win or at the very least draw against Leicester City. Should they lose, they will be hoping that Wolves will beat Chelsea. Not an ideal scenario.

The latest team news from the mill indicates that Luke Shaw might be available for selection and that Eric Bailly might also feature in the final league game of the season. He came off in the FA cup loss having suffered what looked like a horrific collision but he seems to be alright now. Besides the two, everyone else barring the long term injuries of Phil Jones and Axel Tuanzebe will be up for selection against the Foxes.

It will be interesting to see who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be fielding on Sunday. While it looks like the squad that had managed to break the record of winning 4 successive games with a margin of 3 goals might start, we have seen fatigue get the best of the boys. And that is not taking into account how Leicester have had more time to rest their players. As a United fan, many are expecting a win from the game, but having seen the engine running out of steam so reminiscent of the previous season, getting a draw might be the end result.

United blew a big chance on Wednesday with a 1-1 draw against West Ham, while Chelsea lost at Liverpool. Leicester were throttled by Spurs and we could have ensured a champions league spot with a win against West Ham, but alas the stars weren’t aligned in our favor. We’ve left it all to the final game of the League and hopefully, the added pressure will light up the fire in the team.

Hopefully United can secure Champions League on Sunday
