Manchester United enjoyed a perfect Sunday after a win against Burnley and a defeat for Liverpool against Crystal Palace put them on the brink of UEFA Champions League qualification.
Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney gave the Red Devils a 2-0 win away to the Clarets before a Christian Benteke double broke Liverpool hearts at Anfield.
The results mean that United are just three points behind the Reds with two games in hand on Jurgen Klopp’s men.
Jose Mourinho and his side now head into an absolutely massive Manchester derby on Thursday, making the short trip to the Etihad to face City. A win there would put them in fourth place with just five games remaining.
After a fairly inconsistent season in the Premier League, especially at home, it appears as if Mourinho’s men are peaking at the perfect time, with UEFA Europa League glory also a real possibility.
Supporters are beginning to believe the tail-end of the season has lots of good stuff in store for them.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Man Utd winning 2-0
Liverpool losing 2-1
Man City losing 2-1
3 pts off 3rd place with 2 games in hand happy days #MUFC
