United's stuttering season continues! The club qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League with a game to spare but the reds continue to draw games they would expect to be getting maximum points from. Recent draws at home to Crystal Palace and away at Southampton highlight the problem. The December calendar and the recently made FA Cup draw mean there is a busy festive period coming up. Fixtures start with a home match against Arsenal on 5th December and then struggling Fulham visit Old Trafford for the second home match in four days. The trip to Valencia is now a match where players could be rested as qualification is secure, especially as the club visit Anfield on December 16th.
The matches come thick and fast with Cardiff City being visited on 22nd December before Huddersfield and then Bournemouth come to the theatre of dreams. The new year starts with a trip to Newcastle before the FA Cup home tie with Reading.pqs: qs:
