Manchester United welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford on Thursday night.
Manchester United’s 3-1 defeat against Arsenal at the weekend all but officially ended their hopes of finishing in the top four. An emotional Scott McTominay claimed United are now playing for ‘pride’ across the remaining four fixtures following that defeat.
Manchester United have Chelsea, Brentford, Brighton and Crystal Palace left to play this season before Erik ten Hag arrives at the club.
Rangnick’s side are currently sixth in the Premier League and reluctantly securing Europa League football now seems the aim.
