Top-four permutations for Man Utd, Leicester and Chelsea


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men face West Ham United on Wednesday, just before Chelsea travel to Liverpool. Leicester have only one game left, following their 3-0 defeat to Tottenham on Sunday.

Focusing on United, the Reds need at least a point from the Old Trafford encounter with the Hammers in order to move above Leicester into fourth. The teams are currently level on 62 points but Brendan Rodgers’s side have scored more goals. 

A victory by a one or two-goal margin would not alter the situation with the Foxes too dramatically. Leicester would still be left needing victory at the King Power Stadium to regain fourth place, unless Wednesday’s result was, say, 5-3 which would mean a 1-0 victory for the 2016 champions on the last day ensuring the two clubs having an identical record (head-to-head is then considered but United won 1-0 at Old Trafford in the corresponding fixture!)
