The Red Devils dropped to fifth place in the Premier League table with 50 points after Arsenal’s win over Leicester City moved them into fourth place with 51 points. Moreover, the Gunners also have three games in hand, meaning that Ralf Rangnick’s side will have it all to do if they are to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
On the other hand, Atletico are currently in fourth place with 51 points, just two points clear of fifth-placed Real Betis after having played the same number of matches. With Diego Simeone’s side yet to face three of the teams currently in the top six in their remaining 10 games, they will not have an easy road ahead either.
