The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Jose Mourinho’s men can wrap up a top-four finish over the coming weeks. They’re looking likely to get their wish of Champions League football next season, but the Red Devils cannot afford to take their foot off the gas.
They’re facing a tough test against Swansea City this weekend, and Jose Mourinho will be expected to lead his team to victory.
Whilst Man Utd fans will no doubt be expecting a win, it doesn’t appear as though they’re looking to see that happen with the same team that played in the Red Devils’ last game against Brighton.
Indeed, it appears as though fans are keen to see defender Chris Smalling dropped this weekend – with a whopping 67% of Man Utd fans polled on the matter calling for the Englishman to be replaced against the Swans.
It’s no real surprise, of course. Though a regular member of the first team this season, Smalling hasn’t been at his best for a while now, and his inconsistent form has cost his side on more than one occasion.
He wouldn’t be near the team for several of the other sides around Man Utd, but Jose Mourinho’s options at the back are limited.
Nonetheless, Man Utd fans clearly want to see change, with players like Eric Bailly and perhaps even someone like Daley Blind preferred in the role.
Who Jose Mourinho will pick, though, remains to be seen.
