United would want their noisy neighbor, Man City to defeat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Thursday. If Chelsea drop point against City, the points gap between them and United will reduce, and the battle to make it to UEFA Champions League next season continues.

My opinion of United’s performance:

With this Manchester United form, it is still possible for the Red Devils to overtake Chelsea in fourth and make it to Champions League.

Writer, ighalo didn't really impress today to be factual. He was a little bit rusty in front of goal today. But the team was a sight to see today 😍
