Manchester United’s victory on February 17 could be the turning point of the Premier League’s top-four race.

Beforehand, Chelsea seemed in pole position for the spot having held it for so long. Yet, the Blues’ lack of results recently has left them vulnerable for attack from Tottenham, Sheffield and Manchester United.

Of course, the latter have been playing catch-up for most of this season.

But Monday’s win now leaves Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side just three points away from Chelsea in seventh.
