Manchester United can still get top four - but it will be hard

Manchester United can still get top four - but it will be hard

United do not return to Premier League action until March 30 when they welcome Watford to Old Trafford.

Manchester City ran away with the Premier League title last season but Pep Guardiola's side haven't quiet been as consistent this year so they are 7 points worse off, which is a decrease of 8.6%.

Rashford's current deal, worth £75,000-a-week, expires at the end of next season, with the option for an extra year, but United want to reward the 21-year-old's progress and reflect his new-found status as one of their most important players.

"So I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but, if we win both, it would be great and this is what we are trying to do".

While it is slightly peculiar that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is getting so much praise for a comeback when he also presided over the first-leg defeat that left United in a hole, it would also be very hard to ignore the squad pleading for him to be permanently appointed and the significantly improved atmosphere around the club.

Ex-Wolves forward Don Goodman, who scored the victor in their last quarter-final win, at Leeds in 1998, also said: "They're all seasoned professionals, playing under a wonderful coach, so they don't need any advice from me".

There is still a long way to go but there are many games left for our rivals to take points off each other, while we have no more matches against our top six rivals.

However, Spurs are without a Premier League victory since beating Leicester City on February 10.

Neymar became the most expensive player in world football when PSG paid £200m to secure his transfer from Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona at the start of last season.

Merson added: "How are they set out to win it?"

Tottenham have seen their title challenge collapse after taking just one point from the last 12 available to leave them on 61 points, which is exactly the same number they had at this stage last season.

"Bayern is famous for going for results they think are good for them and on the night they thought 0-0 was the ideal result".

"I don't think the second goal was a penalty but the referee had to make a decision and he might be disappointed when he sees it".

"They will want to win the league".
