Can Manchester United Finish in the Top 4?

Manchester United is fighting to finish in the top four in this season’s Premier League. Such a finish would allow the Red Devils to qualify for the 2020-2021 UEFA Champions League tournament. After missing out in this year’s tournament, they’re determined to avenge their failure.

The Red Devils are still in the Europa League tournament. The tournament is set to resume on Aug. 5. One of the favorites to win the tournament, Manchester United are on a roll and should be able to take care of business at Old Trafford and advance to the quarterfinals.

At the very least, it’s safe to say that their chances at a top spot are a bit slim. The Red Devils are in fifth place and are sitting under Chelsea and Leicester City, both of whom are within three points of Manchester United. That’s fortunate for Manchester United as a finish in third place is possible.

However, all three clubs have six games left to play in the Premier League competition. In Manchester United’s case, they have to win them all to have a chance of finishing in the top four. Further, they have to rely on both Leicester City and Chelsea coming up short in their next six. In other words, if both Leicester City and Chelsea settle for draws and or lose in their final six games while Manchester United is winning, the Red Devils’ odds skyrocket.

At this point, anything can happen. The Red Devils are going to need a great deal of luck to finish in the top four. However, a finish in the top four is certainly not impossible.

Winning the Europa League would is another way for Manchester United to qualify for the Champions League and they are looking to secure their spot before continuing the 2019-2020 Europa League campaign.
