The consecutive defeats against Liverpool and Arsenal made the dream of the top 4 seem to have disappeared for MU. But perhaps, now, and next season, the Red Devils need to, to regain their balance and continue to fight for further goals.
Erig Ten Hag will come to Old Trafford with many hopes of bringing MU back to being as powerful as Sir Alex. It would be simpler if they only had to play in 2nd tier cup tournaments (or 3rd like Europa League), which would be much less effortful than the Champions League.
In the opposite direction, Chelsea has just had a difficult match against West Ham Utd. But most importantly, they won in the end. The Blues are in 3rd place with 65 points, 7 points more than the 5th team (Tottenham) and less than 1 game.
With Chelsea, they are almost certain to attend the Champions League next season. But Thomas Tuchel’s team will still have an important match left. It is the FA Cup final against Liverpool, the match will take place on May 14.
Saying that does not mean that Chelsea will let go of the match with MU. For teams like Chelsea, winning a match against MU is very important. It’s like “chickens crowing”. Winning MU is always a strong.
