Not too long ago, Man Utd appeared to be in control of the race for Champions League football in the Premier League, but a recent poor run of form coinciding with results elsewhere has seen them falling down the table. The Red Devils are currently sixth, four points behind fourth-placed Arsenal but Ralf Rangnick’s side have played a game more and must now rely on results elsewhere to return to the Champions League.
If you look over a six-game stretch, Man Utd’s Premier League results don’t look too bad, with three wins and two draws, and their only defeat coming to Manchester City. But their past three matches brought some cause for concern, drawing with Watford before their trashing at the hands of Man City, while only just beating Tottenham in a game that neither side really came out looking good. They were also knocked out of the FA Cup and Champions League, guaranteeing yet another trophy-less season.
In each of the past two seasons Leicester have been challenging for Champions League football right until the very end, only just missing out on each occasion. But this season they are some way off and winning the Europa Conference League is their only route back into European football.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are currently 10th in the Premier League, 12 points behind seventh-placed West Ham (which would get a European spot unless Crystal Palace win the FA Cup). Even with their three games in hand, Leicester have an uphill battle to finish high enough for a Conference League spot so now it will be about finishing the Premier League season as high as they can – while perhaps putting their focus on the Conference League where they face PSV in the quarter-finals.
