It has been difficult, it has taken years even, the shadow of Ferguson continues and despite everything, will continue very present but this Manchester United already evokes another happy time. The Old Trafford team has been unbeaten since January and; on the basis of victories, has managed to reach the final stretch of the season in a splendid state of form. So much so, that in the absence of what Chelsea does in the night game; Manchester United has finished their defeat to Bournemouth (5-2) in Champions League positions.

The final score of 5-2 could still be greater if it were not for both annulled Rashford.
