Manchester United’s season goes from bad to very bad on an almost weekly basis.
Languishing in seventh position on the Premier League table, with less than four months left of football, things have not been this bad for more than 20 years. For some, that’s more than a lifetime.
But don’t abandon all hope. Here is five things to help you survive this season:
Liverpool won’t win the Premier League
They may be only six points below league leaders Chelsea, but United’s arch rivals will not be claiming league title No. 19 this campaign. Liverpool have been rejuvenated this season, bolting early out of the blocks, leading the table for a few weeks, and have had a resurgence of late, smashing Arsenal 5-1 on the weekend. But with Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea finally settling in and Manchester City firing in the final third, we won’t see Liverpool lifting the trophy.
We still have the Champions League
Ultimately football’s biggest club prize, United should have no problem dismantling Olympiacos in the Round of 16 after the Greeks sold top goal scorer to Kostas Mitroglou to Fulham. After that, anything could happen from the quarter-finals.
We’re still pretty good on FIFA 14
For all you gaming lovers out there, Manchester United is actually pretty good to play with on FIFA14 after signing Juan Mata. Mix him with Rooney and van Persie and you have a plethora of attacking options. So vent your anger, and win the title with your controller.
The 19-year-old winger continues to impress in a red jersey. Born in Brussels, Januzaj has been a revelation this season, dazzling the touchline and winning the admirations of the Stretford End. With the number seven jersey vacant, we could be seeing the youngster don the kit worn by the likes of George Best, Eric Cantona, David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo next season.
The World Cup
This season will be forgotten very soon. With the World Cup around the corner, once match day 38 is over, all attention will go to Brazil and you can drown your sorrows supporting whoever you wish.
