'It shall be difficult...,' LvG replied when asked about UCL qualification. He and Rooney also mentioned about qualification in other way eg winning Europa League. This came after a limp 2-1 defeat at the Stadium of Light. Sunderland were just too aggressive, they also said. It was the Black Cats first win over the Red Devils at Wearside since 1997!! See how far Man Utd had declined since SAF retired.
Martial scored the equaliser but Utd failed finally
Arsenal and Spurs enhanced their title hopes with wins over their nearest rivals. Danny Welbeck came back from injuries to score a last minute winner against Leicester at Emirates. Spurs also edged out Man City 2-1.
Midweek next will be the UCL and Europa League matches.
