Why Man United have a golden chance to put one over Liverpool and Arsenal

first_imgThe battle for the top four – or more likely, third and fourth place in the Premier League – is hotting up, with the prospect of .Manchester United proved that once again at the weekend, with the Red Devils lucky to escape with a point as they took on a tough West Ham side.While a number of Red Devils sympathisers have heralded it as a good point against an in form team, in truth United wasted handful of good chances throughout the game to take maximum points.With 14 matches remaining the Premier League season, there is sure to be plenty more twists and turns left in this race for a Champions League spot, but for United, the next six league fixtures will go some way to determining whether they will be in hunt come the start of spring.Fortunately for Louis van Gaal, while their rivals face a mixed bag in terms of opposition over the next few matchdays, United have a comparatively favourable immediate run, before they hit a tricky patch.Man United’s next six Premier League fixtures look like this:February 11 – Home v BurnleyFebruary 21 – Away v SwanseaFebruary 28 – Home v SunderlandMarch 4 – Away v NewcastleMarch 15 – Home v TottenhamMarch 22 – Away v LiverpoolUnited face just one team in the current top ten over their next four matches (an away trip to Swansea), with their only real distraction during this period being an FA Cup clash against League One’s Preston North End.For the Red Devils all of these matches are eminently winnable and they will be expected to collect maximum points. Given the huge fixtures at the end of March against Tottenham and Liverpool respectively and the back-to-back clashes home to Man City and away to Chelsea in mid-April, even more onus is placed on these next four matches.In terms of the spread of fixtures, despite two nasty fortnights, United should consider themselves relatively fortunate.Six of their 14 remaining league fixtures come against teams considered to be in the battle for relegation, with two – away to Newcastle and Everton respectively – against sides that will likely aspire to little more than midtable.Last weekend’s draw against West Ham was not ideal, but with the carrot of a chance to rectify that immediately dangling in front of them, United have one of the better chances to solidify a top four spot.Man United fans, do you think you’ll finish in the top four? Comment below… Man United are in good shape for a top four finish 1last_img read more
