With Manchester City firmly in the driver’s seat, it was always going to be a tough task for Manchester United to take the title race down to the wire.

But if they did win their remaining games in hand, there could have been a small chance of Pep Guardiola’s side slipping up, which would have opened up an opportunity for them. Unfortunately, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men could only manage a goalless draw away at Elland Road against Leeds United.

As a result, it means that Manchester City need only 6 more points from their last 5 league games of the season to guarantee themselves the title although their superior goal difference means that even a point a game could prove to be enough from here on.

And it is hard to see them dropping so many points from their last few games after showing admirable consistency throughout the course of the campaign.

Now, Manchester United’s focus should turn completely towards the Europa League. At this point of time, they have 9 point lead over fourth place Chelsea, which should prove to be comfortable enough for them to finish the season in the top four. As things stand, the Red Devils sit at second in the Premier League table.

On the other hand, the Europa League seems to be their only chance of winning some silverware this season now.

They are currently in the semi-finals of the competition where they will take on AS Roma. And it is safe to say that the Red Devils are being considered as one of the heavy favourites to lift the trophy come May.
