But the Red Devils have shown some vitality this season especially after the January transfer when they signed Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo.

Their chances for a top-four finish was boosted on Friday when Leicester blew away their match against Norwich City at Carrow Road.

A stunning lone goal from Jamal Lewis was enough to sink the Brendan Rodgers’ side and revive Norwich’s hope of vacating the relegation zone.

But this is good news to United who will need a win against Everton on Sunday to reduce the gap with Leicester and Chelsea.
