Manchester United faces the last place team in the Premier League table, needing to score points to secure European football next season. They are currently in seventh position with 50 points, in the Europa Conference League spot. Tottenham seems to be too far away with 60 points, so it seems we will have a fight with Newcastle, West Ham, Chelsea, and Brighton for the last two European spots.

The Red Devils had an eventful Sunday to say the least. They beat Coventry in the FA Cup semifinals in a match that will be remembered for a long time. The game started as expected with Manchester United demonstrating the differences in quality taking a 3-0 lead but in the final 20 minutes, Coventry shocked the world and tied the game 3-3 to take it to extra time.

The extra time was show of its own with both teams having clear chances but no one was able to break the tie until a counterattack in the final minute of the game gave Coventry the 4-3 lead to make Wembley go wild. However, at Coventry’s behest, the goal was ruled offside by the smallest of margins erasing an unbelievable moment in English football. Only a few moments later the dream was completely shattered with Manchester United winning the game by 4-2 in penalty kicks, to qualify for a new FA Cup final against Manchester City, a repeat from last season.

Sheffield United is currently enjoying their last games in the Premier League until at least the 2025/26 season. They are expected to go down, but still have a mathematical chance to stay up, even if not even the most optimistic would entertain the thought.
