I think Man Utd will have too much for them. Great momentum and strikers scoring for fun. Be a good game though.

Hello,

Man U look to be playing well. Pogba looks relaxed (albeit not 100% fit). Given where they are now, Ole has done well. Tomorrow morning will be important as well.

If United win tomorrow they go 3rd with 3 to play which I’d suggest would be enough. Being as most of the teams placed 3-8 play each other they will all take points of each other.

Interesting to see what will happen to City tonight and if their ban is upheld ( which it should be). That would take ECL place to 5th but if United win Europa League would that then go to the team finishing 6th???

Man Utd v Leicester is final fixture i think, not sure who's at home but be interesting game if 4th place still on the line. United by far the easier run in so very strong favourites at this juncture i would say. Momentum with them as well.

Leicester have Sheffield at home, Spurs away and United at home. 3 tough games.
Chelsea have Norwich, Liverpool away and Wolves home.
United have Southampton at home, Palace away, West Ham home then Leicester away.

You would think United have the most opportunity to pick up points.Interesting to see what affect the FACup semi final in the middle makes.

Always makes it worwhile!!
Can’t you record it? I watch EPL on an App and it automatically downloads all the games so you can watch them anytime.
Yeah, I have a EPL subscription through NBC and can watch any games on demand, but I have a hard time watching sporting events that have already happened. If I know the result, it takes a lot of the fun out of it. Personal hangup I guess. As I said, usually in these early games I'd sleep in (or just catch the end) and catch highlights later but this one was important enough I wanted to see for myself.
I don’t mind watching a game that is finished if I don’t know the result ( which is the case with the App). I just get up and watch it.
But agree if it is a big game I would rather watch it live.
Can't believe no one's mentioned the Likely Lads episode where they're trying to avoid the England score.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board
