PREMIER LEAGUE RACE FOR A TOP FOUR FINISH

After Chelsea’s win on Friday, a trophy or league title for other Premier League clubs at the top of the table are no longer at stake, but the race for the top four will continue to be the most high-profile contest this weekend - with Liverpool, Manchester City, Arsenal, and Manchester United battling over two places.

 

City are the first in action this weekend. Saturday's early kick-off sees them hosting Leicester City who are back in the top half of the table despite their tumble down to the bottom half at the start to their 2016-17 campaign. If Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side wins they would go third, above Liverpool having played the same number of games. A fit Manchester City can go third with a win on Saturday.

Arsenal play on Saturday evening, traveling to Stoke City where they historically struggle. The Gunners appear to be back in form, but if they lose their top-four hopes are perhaps over. Arsenal have recorded back to back wins, and a third win would keep them in the running.

Should both Arsenal and City both win, Liverpool will be under critical pressure when they travel to West Ham on Sunday just a point ahead of Arsenal, and two behind City with all three teams having played the same number of games.

 

Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United side round off the weekend with their trip to Tottenham Hotspur for a massive game. If Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal lose their matches beforehand, the Reds will have an opening for a top four finish again, but it will be a tough challenge at White Hart Lane, and Portuguese manager Mourinho is set to play without too much rest for his players after United’s Europa League semifinals victory on Thursday, sending the Reds through to the Europa League Final in Sweden against titan Italian Serie A club Juventus.

Manchester United's 1-1 Europa League semi-final second-leg draw with Spanish side Celta Vigo (2-1 agg) at Old Trafford on Thursday sees the titan English side advance to the Europa League Final.

On target for manager Jose Mourinho’s plan, Manchester United is one win away from qualifying for the Champions League. United, who progressed 2-1 on aggregate, were only seconds from being knocked out, but John Guidetti missed an easy chance for Celta Vigo in the final minute of stoppage time, both teams having been reduced to 10 men following red cards for Eric Bailly and Facundo Roncaglia after a late clash.

Bailly's dismissal, for lashing out at Guidetti, means he will miss the final against Ajax in Stockholm, leaving Manchester United without their best defender in a crucial game they must win in order to qualify for next season's Champions League tournament. Marcos Rojo will also miss the final due to a cruciate ligament injury. Bailly's absence will leave a huge hole in the Reds back four. Chris Smalling and Phil Jones, who have both been subjected to stinging criticism from Red boss Jose Mourinho in recent weeks, will compete for the right to partner with Daley Blind.

United will face Ajax in the Europa League final after a narrow win in Spain on Thursday, followed by a hard fought 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. Ajax are weak at the back and have not gotten a win on the road in Europe for six games. The Europa League Final promises to be an exciting night in Stockholm for Manchester United and Ajax fans.

Marouane Fellaini came through as a hero with his crucial header sending his side through. Fellaini has prospered and improved under Mourinho’s wing, and the Belgian midfielder with big hair repaid his manager's faith in him with a crucial first-half goal against Celta Vigo that put United in control of this Europa League semifinal. Fellaini who was sent off for head-butting Manchester City's superstar striker Sergio Aguero last month is becoming a man for the big occasion; today’s goal against Celta was his third in semifinals for United. When Jose Mourinho selects Fellaini, the Reds lose the ability to control the midfield as the former Everton man is often picked ahead of Michael Carrick alongside Ander Herrera. When Mourinho goes with Carrick, United seem to control the passing and tempo of the game better.

Against Ajax in the Europa League final later this month, United will again face a team confident in possession, so Mourinho has a big choice to make – whether to go with Carrick's experience or is Fellaini's goal scoring potential. It is a big call and one that could decide whether United win in Stockholm or come back empty-handed.

The Europa League’s upcoming clash between giant clubs Manchester United and Ajax in the final in Stockholm will boost the competition's apeal. On May 24, Stockholm will see two clubs with 10 major European trophies between them battle it out for glory and silverware in the Friends Arena.

Ajax have already secured Champions League qualification for next season through by winning the Dutch Eredivisie league title this season, so they will travel to Sweden without the added pressure. Ajax are a titan club with a glittering tradition and will go head to head with Man United with the belief and winning mentality that comes from being one of Europe's most successful clubs.

If United win the final against Ajax, they will be back in the Champions League and will join Peter Bosz's Ajax, Bayern Munich, Juventus and Chelsea as the only clubs to win all of UEFA's major trophies: the European Cup, which was replaced by the Champions League; the Cup Winners' Cup, which is now defunct; the Super Cup; and the UEFA Cup, which was replaced by the Europa League.

Referee: S Karasev (Russia)

Man United are within striking distance of reaching a third European final in the last 10 years after last week's crucial 1-0 victory in Spain in the first leg of the semi-final tie. Despite facing a strong Celta Vigo side, Manchester United is sure to be confident of progressing to the final in a bid to lift the only major trophy left to win in the titan EPL club's long and illustrious history. A victory this campaign in the Europa League will claim a coveted place in next season's Champions League.

Heading into this crucial match, the Red Devils hold a narrow advantage by virtue of a crucial away goal in the tie, after 19-year-old No.19 Marcus Rashford scored his 19th goal of the season with a fantastic free-kick in the second half to give United a deserved victory at the Estadio Balaidos in Vigo.  

Reds’ boss, Jose Mourinho's side were given much-needed strength by the return to action of Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, and Juan Mata against Arsenal last weekend but are still without five players as Tim Fosu-Mensah, Ashley Young, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Zlatan Ibrahimovic are sidelined through injury. Eric Bailly, Daley Blind, Antonio Valencia and Paul Pogba may be among the players to return to action on Thursday after being rested against the Gunners. Sergio Romero is expected to take his regular starting spot in goal in the Europa League in place of the Reds No.1 goalie David De Gea. Marouane Fellaini is available before serving the final match of his three-game domestic ban against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.  

Man United's long impressive unbeaten run of 25 games in the Premier League came to an end at the Emirates Stadium in last Sunday's 2-0 EPL defeat by Arsenal. United will hope to maintain their strong European run at home, having won all six previous Europa League ties at Old Trafford this season. Celta Vigo, however, have lost their last four games in La Liga, including the last two by 3-0 against their rivals, but manager Eduardo Berizzo's side is bidding to reach their first-ever European final with a solid away record in the continental competition – winning three of their four games 2-0 and drawing the other match 1-1. In order to field a stronger team against mighty Man United, Berizzo has also been resting his players in the domestic fixtures. Manchester United have not lost in their last 17 European matches at the Theatre of Dreams, stretching back to a 2-1 loss at home to Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League in 2012-13. At the time, Real Madrid was managed by current Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho. The Reds will compete against a Celta Vigo side who have lost their last four games against English opponents, including last week's first leg but have won more matches (three) than they have lost (two) in England. Thirty-six-year-old Ovidiu Alin Hategan will lead a team of Romanian officials in charge of Thursday's decisive showdown

Manchester United’s Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho revealed that footballers Tim Fosu-Mensah, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw and Ashley Young who are currently out through injury won't be able to feature again this season, but insists his side are otherwise "ready and fresh" ahead of the game.

"Since the last injuries, we know that nobody will recover on time, even to play the last match of the season, so the ones out will be out for the season," said Mourinho. "But people are ready, fresh, with a big desire to play the game. I am proud because we have important injuries that have reduced the possibility of rotation, of turnover, of resting players, so the players are the ones that are present all the time since we have this problem. So, yes, I’m proud, but one more match to be in a European final – we must give everything we have."

"The situation is simple. Seventeen matches in seven weeks with 16 players is impossible. It's not a gamble, it was a simple decision, based on common sense. In April and May, 17 matches with 16 players, is completely impossible,” added Mourinho in his pre-match interview.  "So, since the moment we lost players, and we lost initially four of them in one week when we lost Smalling and Jones from the national team and we lost Zlatan and Rojo against Anderlecht in that moment and, after that, we lost boys that could be good alternatives - Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Tim Fosu-Mensah. So, when we lost these players in a period of 17 matches in seven weeks, it was an impossible job. It was not a gamble, just a consequence of our situation. We are in this situation now and we have to fight for it, so let's see if tomorrow we can do it and if we can go to the final. But it doesn't matter what, no regrets. We are giving everything we can, the players, myself, everyone that works around here. We are giving everything so, when you give everything, no problem.".

While Manchester United take on Celta Vigo, the two other teams battling it out for a place in the final will face off at the Stade de Gerland in France as French League 1 club Lyon host Dutch giants Ajax, who hold a massive 4-1 lead from the first leg last week.

Antonio Conte’s Chelsea side are seven points clear of the Spurs in first place on top of the EPL Table. Going into their clash with West Brom, Premier League leaders Chelsea need only one more win to lift the 2017 EPL trophy after beating Middlesbrough 3-0 at Stamford Bridge on Monday night. Tottenham Hotspurs’s 1-0 defeat at West Ham on Friday left Antonio Conte's Blues with a golden opportunity in the title race, and the west Londoners secured a crucial win as Diego Costa, Marcos Alonso and Nemanja Matic goals sealed an easy win. The result relegated Steve Agnew's Boro in the process. Chelsea can win the title before Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs side even kick the ball in their next match. A victory at West Brom on Friday will confirm a first English title for Conte in his debut season in the Premier League.

Manchester City earned a 5-0 victory against Crystal Palace boosting their hopes for a top four finish and leave the Eagles ahead in the relegation race. Pep Guardiola's side started with a bang on Saturday, with David Silva back in the starting XI to open the scoring after just two minutes. Palace threatened on the counter and Christian Benteke drew a crucial save from Willy Caballero. Second-half goals from Vincent Kompany, Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Otamendi gave City a comfortable win. Palace's relegation rivals Hull lost while Swansea beat Everton in the late kick-off adding more pressure to Big Sam Allardyce.

Meanwhile, Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal increased their hopes of a Premier League top-four finish with their 2-0 win at Southampton on Wednesday night due to Alexis Sanchez's 20th league goal of the season and a late effort from Olivier Giroud.

The Gunners defeated Manchester United 2-0 on Sunday lifting their hopes of Champions League qualification next season and secured another win at St Mary's to go past Jose Mourinho's Red Devils side into fifth place. The win puts pressure on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool in third place, who suffered a goalless draw against Puel's Saints last weekend. Arsenal have a game in hand over Liverpool, and another win would take them to within one point of Jurgen Klopp's side with only two games left. Manchester City have a game in hand over Liverpool and trail the Anfield club by one point.
