It doesn’t get much worse for Manchester United. But on Sunday morning, the Red Devils would fall to relegation-threatened Newcastle. Here’s the death blow:

It hasn’t been a great season for Manchester United. But right now, they still find themselves in second place. However, with City’s 5-1 win over Leicester City yesterday, they are 16 points back of first. The title race is over. This solidifies it. But in the meantime,A�JosA� Mourinho needs to figure things out. After losing to Tottenham 2-0 last week, it would take them a while to eventually win 0-2 over struggling Huddersfield.
And now today’s result.
Mourinho, of course, has no shortage of talent at his disposal. And United certainly has no shortage of money. But things aren’t clicking. Then again, every club outside of City looks ordinary this season. That, and Pep Guardiola’s side are just on an entirely different level.
But struggling against sides who are near the relegation zone is never a good look. Next up in the league, United takes on Chelsea. But before that, there’s and FA Cup match (Huddersfield) and Champions League leg (Sevilla) to worry about.
For now, it looks like it’ll be a while until Manchester United are back to their former glory. Then again, a deep Champions League run can always change perception.
