Can Manchester United return to the top 4 once they break the jinx

Manchester United have been the object of ridicules from rival fans as they can’t seemingly get out from the 6th position. The Red Devils are currently 14 points behind runaway leaders, Chelsea as the race for the Champions League places heats up.

The Jose Mourinho tutored side, however are just two points behind Arsenal, who currently occupy 4th spot, and could move ahead of their rivals with a win at home to Watford on Saturday, if results from other matches go their way. They are unbeaten since a 4-0 drubbing away at Chelsea back in October, a period which has seen them climb up the league table, closing the gap on the teams above them, and also progressing in the cup competitions.

Tough results against the likes of Watford, Arsenal, Liverpool at home, Arsenal and Stoke have all culminated in they current league position, but there is still cause for optimism as the manager is showing signs of his old self: ruthlessness mixed with tactical genius. In Zlatan Ibrahimovic, they undoubtedly have a man capable of scoring 20 Premier League goals a season.

The likes of Arsenal and Liverpool must be watching their backs as their form in recent weeks has not been encouraging. Arsenal are in their typical mid season slump, while Liverpool are starting to show the effects of their high intensity, high octane, heavy metal football. However, fans are beginning to place money on their various teams, and the ladbrokes android app may come in handy.

Jose Mourinho knows that qualification for the Champions League this term is crucial as failure to qualify for the competition will cost the 3-time European champions some £85m. With his experience, Mourinho will try to get his players above the finish line, and prepare for next season when they will be more formidable probably with the arrival of Antoine Griezmann and Victor Lindelof.

Tough away games against the likes of Tottenham and Manchester City still beckon, but should they find away to overcome those hurdles unscathed then the prospect of a return to the Champions League looks likely and for many it is where they truly belong.
