With Manchester City attending the European Cup, Man Utd will have to win all four rounds to secure the top 4, from today’s match against Southampton.
If you have to choose the team that is most affected by the penalty of banning Man City from attending the European Cup, the name that appears first and only sure is Man Utd.
The reason is not only the “Red Devils” ranked fifth in most of the 2019-2020 season, meaning that you can automatically attend the Champions League if the opponent is penalized, but also by the completely opposite style of Ole’s teachers and students. Gunnar Solskjaer before and after the incident.
Before February 14, the time UEFA issued a notice to punish Man City. Meanwhile, Man Utd was in a series of bad matches. In the League Cup, they were knocked out of the semi-finals by Man City himself. In the English Premier League, “Reds” fans were severely eroded by a three-match winning streak. This included two embarrassing defeats with the same score 0-2 against Liverpool and Burnley.
Rio Ferdinand, after losing to Burnley, complained that the old team had nothing to justify poor performance. Paul Scholes even hinted that fans should forget this season, then wait for new recruits in the summer of 2020.
But then the penalty of Man City appeared. Three days later, Man Utd responded positively on the pitch. Despite controlling the ball 39% and finishing with half of Chelsea, Solskjaer’s teachers and opponents defeated 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.
Three full points helped Man Utd climb to seventh place, closing the gap with Chelsea ranked fourth to three points. Hope to participate in the Champions League in Old Trafford, because if the penalty of Man City upheld, ranked fifth “Reds” also return to Europe’s number one playground.
That belief was extended by Man Utd with a series of positive results after that. Along with the arrival of Bruno Fernandes and the return of Paul Pogba, Marcus Rashford, the 20-time Premier League club is the best team in the fog after Covid-19. From the top 4 points six points before the penalty of Man City, they stand the opportunity to jump to third, the team ranked fourth by two points, if they beat Southampton.
Because Chelsea still has to meet the new Liverpool king. Leicester also has to face Tottenham and Man Utd in the remaining three rounds.
