After Arsenal conceded another defeat earlier today, Manchester United have another chance to strengthen their claim for the top 4. If Manchester United wins the game against Chelsea tonight, Solskjaer’s men will be ahead of Arsenal at 5th place in the league, and level on points with the Blues.
Solskjaer’s side has had a poor run of form, which saw them losing 7 of their last 9 games across all competitions. However, the players have made a bright start against Chelsea, and look upbeat to put on a show for the Old Trafford faithful.
