First Chelsea, then Liverpool
It’s been a good few weeks for Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho could yet end the season on a high at Old Trafford as United aim to add more silverware to their trophy cabinet.
While the Premier League is long gone, United are still in the running for the Champions league and FA Cup.
And the spirit at the club must surely be high following recent Premier League wins over Chelsea and Liverpool.
United beat Chelsea and Liverpool 2-1 at Old Trafford as they’ve opened upa five point lead over Jurgen Klopp’s men in the table.
Man United’s Romelu Lukaku proves himself
For Tony Cascarino in the Times on Monday, Romelu Lukaku has shone for Man United in the last few weeks.
Lukaku, who was signed for 75 million pounds from Everton last summer, has already scored 20 goals for United in all competitions.
Yet the Belgian’s ability continues to be questioned as some wonder if he’s got the talent to cut it at the highest levels.
For Cascarino, Lukaku’s link-up play against Chelsea and Liverpool has proven the forward’s importance to United.
Crucially, Lukaku has chipped in with some significant assists for Jose Mourinho’s side:
Against Liverpool he got his seventh assist this season and a third against a top-six club.
People have questioned whether he is a big-game player but this performance, and his one against Chelsea in the recent 2-1 win, have proved those doubters wrong.
Now that he’s adding assists to his game he gives United a great option going forward.
Man United vs Sevilla
After a goalless draw in Spain a few weeks ago, Man United will be looking to beat Sevilla on Tuesday night in the Champions League.
United will advance to the quarterfinals of the competition if they can beat Sevilla at Old Trafford.
Sevilla warmed up for Tuesday’s match by losing 2-0 at home to Valencia in La Liga last weekend.
That defeat left Sevilla fifth in the Spanish top flight, but they are hanging onto their top six status.
Villarreal are a point behind Sevilla, while Girona are two points adrift.
