Manchester United currently find themselves in a good position when it comes to the Premier League. With 9 games left to be played, they sit at second.

But a top four finish is not set in stone for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side yet though. On the contrary, we have already seen how quickly things can change in the Premier League this season.

At the start of the campaign, it had looked like Manchester City were struggling to reach their own high standards. And now, they look set to win the Premier League by quite some margin unless they slip up over the next couple of months, which in turn could provide the Red Devils the chance to catch up and possibly challenge for the title.

That is unlikely though. On the other hand, it is very possible that with a string of bad results, Manchester United might get caught up in a top four battle. Leicester City are just one point behind them while Chelsea trail them by six points. Behind that West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Everton will all be looking to break into the top four. Thus, the upcoming games will be very vital for Solskjaer’s side.

Manchester United star injured on international duty

Anthony Martial suffered an injury while away on international duty with the France national team. As a result, he missed their game against Bosnia and Herzegovina.

According to L’Equipe (via Sport Witness), he could very well end up missing the game against Brighton and Hove Albion and might be a doubt for the first leg in the Europa League quarter-final against Granada as well.

This, of course, will be a massive blow for the Red Devils. While not at his best form this season, Martial remains a key part of Solskjaer’s first-team plans, especially with the amount of injuries they have had up front in recent weeks.

We would like to extend our best wishes to the Frenchman and hope that he recovers as soon as possible.
