Huddersfield is the last chance for Man U’s CL dreams


Manchester United face Hudderfield Town only one gaol in mind, to qualify for Champions League with only two match left, BBC report.

Huddersfield Town forward Laurent Depoitre is in contention for a first appearance in more than two months after recovering from a foot injury.

Mathias Jorgensen is out because of illness but Aaron Mooy and Ben Hamer are back in training.

Manchester United are missing Eric Bailly, whose season was ended by a knee injury sustained last weekend.

Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Romelu Lukaku, Paul Pogba and Jesse Lingard are doubts, but Marcus Rashford is fit.

As bizarre as it seems though, their own victory might be the part that lets them down - even at a ground where 14 others have won away this season.

Huddersfield won this fixture last term and might as well give it a go again on their home farewell to the Premier League.

And I mean give it a real go. It would be nice (if bitter sweet) for Town fans to see them score more than once in a home league match for the first time in nearly 15 months!

Huddersfield's 2-1 win at Old Trafford last season was a first in 13 top-flight matches against Manchester United (D3, L9).

United have scored at least once in 12 top-flight meetings since a goalless draw in October 1953.

Huddersfield have earned just four points from the past 23 league fixtures.

They can set a new club record on Sunday of nine consecutive league defeats.

Huddersfield can also equal the Premier League record of 29 losses in one season, set by Ipswich in 1994-95, Sunderland in 2005-06 and Derby in 2007-08.

Jan Siewert's side have conceded 21 goals in their past six league matches, and have lost 12 of their 13 games under him.

A 15th home league defeat would match the top-flight record for a season, set by Blackpool in 1966-67 and Stoke in 1984-85.

Huddersfield have scored just nine home league goals this season. In top-flight history, no side has ever failed to reach double figures.

The Terriers have failed to beat a non-promoted team in the Premier League for more than a year.

Manchester United have gone 13 league and cup matches without a clean sheet, the club's longest run since a 16-game streak in 1970.

They could lose six successive away matches in all competitions for the first time since February 1974, when they went on to be relegated from the top flight.

United are winless in their last four games in all competitions (D1, L3). They last had a longer run without victory in December 2015 under Louis van Gaal.

The Red Devils have not won their final away fixture of the season since beating Sunderland in 2012, drawing five and losing one since then.

David de Gea has made three errors leading to goals in his last four games in all competitions - as many as in his previous 123 appearances for the Red Devils.

Marcus Rashford scored six goals in eight games following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's appointment in December, but he has added just one in the last nine.
