Manchester United fans have got that Monday feeling more than most here in the Football Transfer Tavern, having seen their side suffer a damaging defeat in their hopes for a top four finish this season.
Louis van Gaal’s side have been coming in for criticism for some below par performances of late – but at least the Dutchman could usually point to the fact his side had managed to grind out a result.
That was not the case at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday however, after goals from Ki and Bafetimbi Gomis saw Swansea come from a goal down to create club history by doing the league double over Manchester United.
Victories for Liverpool and Arsenal rubbed further salt in the wounds, with van Gaal’s side now just a point clear of fifth placed Southampton in what is developing into a fascinating battle for Champions League football.
And it has to be said, at the moment it looks as though United are the most vulnerable to missing out – unless there is a quick turnaround in form.
Here we have identified five reasons why United are in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification this season.
