Manchester United are still engaged in a fight for third place with Newcastle heading into the final match of the season. This means that Man United will look to win the final clash of the season against Fulham at Old Trafford on Sunday at 15:30 GMT.
A win for Man United in the final match, depending on the result at the Chelsea and Newcastle match, will confirm the Red Devils position in the top-four.
Fulham have little to play for in this match. They will finish 10th on the table whether they win or lose this match, setting it up as a dead rubber for the London side.
Manchester United’s Return to the Champions League
Erik Ten Hag has succeeded in returning Man United to the Champions League by securing the top four. He can secure a top-three finish with a win against Fulham on Sunday.
Things are starting to fall into place at Old Trafford as the Red Devils are on the march again. Erik Ten Hag’s remit for this season was to secure a top-four finish ahead of a big summer of rebuilding.
The plan is to have Ten Hag bring in a few players that will suit his playing style and fill some of the gaps in the team and squad that have hampered Man United this season.
Although they have made progress this season, Man United are still 20 points behind champions Man City and were well beaten in the Europa League this season. They still have an FA Cup final appearance against Man City still to come.
Ten Hag will be keen for his side to wrap up the season with a win, and an optimistic note ahead of the Wembley clash with Man City as they look to add to their Carabao Cup win earlier this season.
