Will United return to Premier League top-four chase?

Manchester United will return to their Premier League top-four chase when they host Aston Villa on Saturday at Old Trafford. Fresh from keeping alive their hopes of winning a first trophy since 2013, United may after all win the Emirates FA Cup. I hope so.

United should endeavor to take maximum points from the remaining Premier League’s final six games to have any chance of catching Manchester City, or third-placed Arsenal, and they certainly can’t afford to drop any points when Aston Villa visit Old Trafford.

I think teen sensation, Marcus Rashford, is here to stay at Old Trafford after the teenager once again showed quality and maturity in United’s Emirates FA Cup replay win over West Ham United. Rashford’s brilliant finish on 54 minutes was his sixth goal of the season.

Will Marcus Rashford do the magic like he did just before the above photo was shot?

United will play Everton in the FA Cup semi-finals at Wembley Stadium on April 23 thanks to the Red Devils 2-1 win at West Ham United in their quarter-final replay in midweek as they look to win the competition for the first time since 2004.

As 11-time winners, United’s win of the FA Cup will bring some comfort to under-pressure manager Louis van Gaal following a difficult second year at Old Trafford.

United captain Wayne Rooney could start on Saturday against Aston Villa after returning from two months out with a knee injury after a short stint as substitute against West Ham on Wednesday.

The Premier League has confirmed that Kevin Friend will now referee United’s match with Aston Villa at Old Trafford, after he was taken off the Tottenham Hotspur game on Monday night. Anthony Taylor was originally meant to take charge of the Reds vs Villa match.

I look forward to Saturday’s encounter with Villa.

I think Manchester United will triumph . . .

Up Man U!
