Huddersfield Town vs Manchester United: Match preview

Posted by

Manchester United take on Huddersfield Town at the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday afternoon knowing that they have to win to have any chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side currently sits sixth and need fourth-place Chelsea to slip up if they want to play in Europe’s premier club competition next season.

Huddersfield will be hosting their final league game of the season. Having already being relegated they would be looking to give their fans something to cheer about as they prepare for life in the Championship next season.

Form

Huddersfield Town – LLLLLL

Huddersfield has known for some time that they will be playing Championship football next season.
Huddersfield’s squad should not need any extra motivation ahead of a clash with a club of that magnitude, but there have been signs that some players have already started to look ahead to the summer.

Manchester United – DLLWLW

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spent much of the last couple of weeks having to fend off questions regarding his under-performing squad, but the United boss will be confident that his side can still end the campaign on a positive note.

Possible Outcome

United have been heavily criticised in recent weeks, but this is the perfect fixture to get back to winning ways. Solskjaer is having to deal with a number of fitness issues.

Already-relegated Huddersfield head into their final home game of their stay in the Premier League looking to register just their fourth win of a dismal top-flight campaign.

Expect United to get the win they desire.
