Manchester United increased the pressure on the Premier League’s top four with a comprehensive 3-0 victory over champions Leicester on Sunday.
Jose Mourinho’s men had seen Arsenal and Liverpool lose on Saturday, and took full advantage thanks to goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Juan Mata.
The victory, their 12th of the season and first since January 2, means that they are now just a point behind fifth place Liverpool, who themselves are only a point adrift of Arsenal in fourth.
However, the Red Devils still trail leaders Chelsea by 14 points after Antonio Conte’s men beat Arsene Wenger’s men 3-1 on Saturday, which is likely too big a gap to bridge between now and May.
United are now unbeaten in their last 15 Premier League matches, and will be confident of getting a top four place come May, and indeed returning to the Champions League after a year absence, yet they could still put the pressure on Chelsea between now and the end of the season.
They’ve certainly got the players to go on a long winning run, so here are TWO that must start every game if they are to bridge the gap between themselves and Chelsea…
