MANCHESTER – Manchester United returned to the UEFA Champions League next season after they secured top four positions in the English Premier League season 2022/23.
The Red Devils confirmed a spot in the highest tier of European events after they crushed Chelsea 4-1 at Old Trafford in the EPL make-up game of matchday 32 last night.
The 13 times league winner is now in third place with 72 points, two points ahead of Newcastle and five ahead of number five’s Liverpool.
United could finish this season as number three by beating Fulham at home in the last matchday this Sunday.
Victory at Theater of Dream
Although they need only a point to guarantee a ticket into the UCL season 2023/24, Manchester United beat Chelsea with a full strike at the Theater of Dream yesterday.
The Red Devils once led 4-0 with goals from Casemiro, Anthony Martial, Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford. The visitors could only collect a late score from Joao Felix in the 89th minute.
United ended the race of top four in advance with three consecutive wins, destroying the hope of Liverpool to participate in the Champions League next season.
The Reds can only compete in the UEFA Europa League along with number six’s Brighton.
Chelsea continued to suffer with their disastrous performance, losing eight matches out of ten since Frank Lampard took the manager job.
Revival of Man United
Manchester United will appear in the Champions League again after they missed it this season.
The most successful club in Premier League history seems to have recovered from the last season, in which they finished as sixth place and could only play in the Europa League.
After Erik Ten Hag took his position as the head coach this season, the Red Devils showed a significant improvement and steady performance in the last ten months.
Not just winning the Carabao Cup title, United are holding a chance to lift the FA Cup trophy in the final against Manchester City on 3rd June.
The Dutchman strengthened his squad with remarkable management and brilliant strategy, with contributions from several players including Casemiro, Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Christian Eriksen, Antony, Lisandro Martinez and David de Gea.
With upgrading the team by signing new top class players, especially a forward and a centre-back, it is not impossible for Man United to claim their fourteenth EPL title next year.
Upcoming: EPL matchday 38
The English Premier League gameweek 38 will be played this Sunday, with all the ten games at the same time, as the last matchday this season.
As the champion, the runner-up, top four and top six positions had been confirmed, the relegation zone is the only part to be focused.
Everton, Leeds United and Leicester City will compete for the only spot to survive in the top tier league in Britain next season.
Everton have a bright opportunity to avoid relegation, as they are two points ahead of the White Roses and the Foxes.
Besides, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Brentford will fight for a seat in the Europa Conference League season 2023/24.
