Will Manchester United Achieve Champions League Qualification?

Manchester United

The Premier League has announced that the current campaign will be resuming from May 17, with Manchester City v Arsenal being the first fixture back.

Manchester United looked to be sneaking towards a top-four finish before the break. The side’s form had been rejuvenated since the signing of Bruno Fernandes. They still lie three points behind Chelsea, who occupy the fourth position.

Will Manchester United Reach the Champions League?

Key Players to Select From

There are nine games left of the Premier League campaign and although the break from the league had halted some impressive form from the Red Devils, they now have two very important players back from injury.

Both Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford are going to be fit for the restart. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told MUTV: “They’re looking good, they’ve joined training now and they’ve done everything the other boys have been doing. No reaction so far, touch wood.

“When we get started, it looks like we can have a full squad to choose from.”

Manchester United have been guilty of being unable to break down a deep block this season. Five of United’s eight losses have come against sides in the bottom half of the table.

Yet, with Fernandes, Pogba, Rashford and also Anthony Martial, the United frontline looks incredibly strong for the last nine Premier League games.

A Good Run In

The Red Devils’ first match back is against Tottenham Hotspur. After that, they only face one other top-six club; Leicester City.

The rest of United’s fixtures consist of six teams in the bottom half of the table, including Brighton & Hove Albion and Aston Villa.

The majority of United’s remaining matches are ones which the fans will expect the club to win. Yet, they have been the matches which have given them the most trouble in recent times.

It is quite clear that United have one of the kindest runs of fixtures out of the top six. With Chelsea still having to play both Manchester City and Liverpool, United must see this as an opportunity to overtake the Blues.

Manchester United are in no way easy runners for the fourth spot. However, with their attack bolstered and the defence solid, they have a great chance of achieving Champions League qualification.
