Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City all occupy the top 4 spots in the Premier League at the minute, and with 10 matches to go it is crunch time for the teams who are title contenders, as well as European contenders.
Anyone in the top 4 can still win the title this year, so competition at the minute is fierce with all clubs desperate to win their matches and hope their respective rivals drop points in the title fight (including Tottenham, yes I said it)
- Currently in 7th place, 3 points off 6th placed Everton with both teams having games in hand
- Trailing 2-0 against Greek champions Olympiakos in the Last 16 of the UEFA Champions League
|Frustrating: United have struggled this term under Moyes, but it's not his fault|
|United are losing 2-0 against Olympiakos (UCL), in a game they expected to win comfortably|
- Lost 8 matches already this season, out of the FA Cup and knocked out of the Capital One Cup by eventual runners-up Sunderland
|Disgruntled: United supporters are annoyed (rightly so) but they should not blame Moyes|
They are making midfielder Tom Cleverley the scapegoat for the reason why the team is currently not doing as well as they would have liked - even though he hasn't been playing very well he isn't the only one.
|Unfair: Cleverley has been subject to a petition, wanting to ban him from playing for the English national team.|
|Harsh: This petition, asking the FA to ban Cleverley from the England squad has already reached over 17,000 signatures in 4 days|
|Lacklustre: Cleverley is getting unwanted attention as a result of poor performances|
|Scapegoat: Cleverley (centre) is being unfairly critiziced for United's poor form this season.|
If they finish outside the top four (5-8th) then they will have to play in the Europa League, going through qualification rounds, group stages every Thursday and having to travel all across Europe within the space of a few days between matches - which has proven hazardous for the British teams who have participated in the competition in the past.
It will be an interesting finish to the league season... that's for sure.
