5 things Manchester United can do to save their season
- Manchester United can still end the season on a high, but here are the 5 things they need to do to achieve that.
Manchester United are currently at their lowest ebb following last Wednesday’s Champions League elimination at the hands of Sevilla. The Old Trafford outfit started the 2017/18 season with so much promise, having made huge investments, but are yet to really reap the benefits.
The arrivals of Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, Victor Lindelof and later Alexis Sanchez was expected to spur the club on in both the Premier League and Europe.
However, as it stands the Red Devils are currently out of the Premier League title race with Manchester City having a 16-point lead at the top of the table. Also, with their Champions League campaign over, it looks like there is not much for United fans to look forward to for the remainder of the season.
The onus now lies with Jose Mourinho and his men to finish the campaign on a high and avoid what would be a crisis going into the 2018/19 season.
Here are the 5 things Manchester United need to do to save their season:
#5 Win the FA Cup
Manchester United do not have much to play for in the current season. However, the club still has the chance to avoid going trophyless when the season comes to an end.
There is the FA Cup, where the Red Devils will be facing Brighton & Hove Albion in the quarter-final on Saturday evening. Jose Mourinho and his players must try to finish the season on a high and they can give their fans something to cheer about if they are able to lift the FA Cup trophy.
With the club already out of the Premier League title race, the FA Cup really offers a realistic chance of them ending the season with silverware. Fortunately, the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool have been eliminated and the only teams that really stand in the way of the Red Devils are Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
But if the Red Devils really want to save their season, then they have no other choice than to go all out and win the FA Cup.
