Manchester United next Premier League fixtures in top-four race compared to Liverpool and Newcastle
The race for the top four is heating up as the Premier League season enters its final weeks.
Manchester United have suffered back-to-back defeats at the worst possible time, while Arsenal have halted Newcastle’s fine recent form with victory at St James’ Park.
It’s a different story for Liverpool, who have mustered six wins on the spin to turn what looked like a disaster season into a decent one with a late push for fourth spot.

Tottenham are not mathematically out of the running - but all their rivals to barely pick up a point while also winning their three remaining games - so let’s forget them, while Brighton’s games in hand could throw a further spanner in the works.
