Following the Champions League defeat to Atletico Madrid on Tuesday night, Manchester United’s hopes of winning a trophy this season has been dashed.

United now have a harsh reality of making a top four finish.

However, finishing in the top four won’t be an easy feat.

Manchester United are currently 5th in the league and a point behind 4th place Arsenal, but the Gunners have two outstanding games.

With 9 games left until the end of the season, Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has admitted that Manchester United must win the remaining games of the season to finish in top four, which won’t be an easy feat.

Rangnick said when asked if finishing in the top four would be the target, he said: “Yes, but that would have been the case, even if we’d have won the game tonight.

“We also have to be realistic. To achieve that, we have to win six, if not seven, of the games and win away at Arsenal.

“It’s not an easy thing to achieve, at the end, but we will try hard and our very best to finish fourth at the end of the season. Whatever happens, our job now, together with the fantastic supporters, the fans were fantastic today, is to finish this season on the best and highest possible note.”
