What Manchester United need to do to secure top-four Premier League finish this season

April 28, 2023

Man United currently themselves fourth in the Premier League table, albeit with a game in hand over third-placed Newcastle.

Manchester United remain on course for a top-four finish in the Premier League this season, but Erik ten Hag will be keen for his players to secure Champions League football as quickly as possible.

The Reds squandered a 2-0 lead as they drew 2-2 with Tottenham in the top-flight on Thursday night. Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford were both on target for the away side, but Pedro Porro and Heung-min Son scored for Spurs in the second half to level proceedings.

With Newcastle having thrashed Everton 4-1 on Thursday night, Ten Hag’s side dropped below the Magpies in the table. However, United still have a game in hand over Eddie Howe’s men and will be aiming to finish inside the top-three come the end of the campaign.

Despite dropping points in London in midweek, the Reds are still in a good position to secure Champions League football for next season. As the battle at the top end of the table continues to intensify, MEN Sport has taken a close look at what United need to do to ensure they finish inside the top-four this term.
