Things have very quickly turned sour for Ole Gunnar Solskjær, whose dream start as Manchester United manager has given way to seven defeats in his last nine matches. The Reds need to bounce back with a win at home to Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday if they’re to stand any chance of a top four finish.
Last weekend, United’s 4-0 humiliation away at Everton appeared to have all but ended their hopes of playing Champions League football next season. Since then, however, Spurs, Chelsea and Arsenal have all dropped points, leaving United still just three points adrift of Chelsea and the final qualification spot. The fat lady isn’t yet singing.
United will still be without Antonio Valencia, while Ander Herrera, Eric Bailly, Phil Jones and Scott McTominay are all in doubt. Ethan Ampadu, Antonio Rüdiger and Callum Hudson-Odoi are all on the treatment table for Chelsea, while N’Golo Kanté and Marcos Alonso face late fitness tests.
