Forget Their Result; This Will Be United's Fate Again If They Fail To Win Their Remaining Games.

Manchester United were made to labor for a 2-0 win at Selhurst park which kept them firmly in the race for a top four finish this season.

With Leicester City having won their match against Sheffield United earlier on, the pressure was on United to respond, and boy they did.

Without key player - Luke Shaw - through injury, Man United started the match on a back foot, as they gradually soaked the incessant pressure from the home side.

However, Marcus Rashford ensured the Red Devils would go into the break on a winning note after a stylish finish from the England International saw United take the lead on the cusp of halftime.

Crystal Palace were left frustrated when their 55th minute equaliser was cancelled after a lengthy review from VAR saw the initial decision to award them a goal, irrelevant.

Although Palace continued to mount the pressure on United, Anthony Martial made sure the away team would not suffer same heartbreak as they did against Southampton.

Both Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford was involved in the second goal, as Martial capped off a fine performance to score his 22nd goal of the season and help his side go level on points with Leicester City, and trailing Chelsea by just 1 point.

However, Manchester United will/could still end up in the Europa League next campaign if they fail to collect maximum points from their remaining 2 games.

With relegation-fighters West Ham visiting Old Trafford in their next Premier League game, it promises to be a mouthwatering clash as former United coach David Moyes will take his team to a familiar ground where he spent just 7months.

Leicester City awaits United in the final day for a potential decisive match in the race for Champions League qualification, and should the Old Trafford outfit lose the game, it will all but seal their Europa League fate.

Other top four rival Chelsea do not seem to be relenting on their own side, although they have tough fixtures in Liverpool and Wolves.

Nevertheless, in football nothing is ever sure, so thinking the Blues will drop points when they meet Liverpool and Wolves will be total folly as Chelsea can equally win those two fixtures.

For Manchester United to make top four and qualify for the Champions League, they must win their remaining 2 games or their winning result against Crystal Palace would all be for nought.

Do You Believe Manchester United Can Win Their Remaining Games And Qualify For Champions League OR Not?
