Man Utd could keep the preseason chaos after missing the top four spots in the Premier League.


A pre-season chaos campaign potentially awaits Manchester United after its embarrbading draw with Huddersfield.

Scott McTominay's first game was canceled in the second half by Isaac Mbenza for the resilient Terriers, to give them a memorable draw in their last home game of the Premier League.

The result condemns United to the Europa League next season after Chelsea beat Watford, which means that the top four could not be obtained officially.

Now it is likely that United will finish in sixth place, since Arsenal needs four points from their last two games to guarantee a finish over the side of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

While playing in the Europa League is a disappointment enough for United, now also their preseason plans can be thrown into chaos by the programming of matches in the secondary competition of Europe.

Solskjaer has seen his team lose the top 4 of the Premier League.

If United finishes sixth, they will require Man City to win the FA Cup; otherwise, his season in the Europa League will start on July 25.

Watford, who is at the top of the Wembley final in May, means they will take second place in the automatic group stage of the sixth clbadified team.

That would mean that the start date of the United League of Europe would coincide with their plans for the preseason tour, where Solskjaer was ready to side with Australia, China, Singapore and Wales.

United may have to participate in the Europa League play-offs.

United are still expected to play against Perth Glory and Leeds United in Australia on July 13 and 17, respectively.

But now the July 20 game against Inter Milan in Singapore is at risk, as is the clash with Tottenham Hotspur, which was to take place on July 25.

The meeting against AC Milan in Cardiff, scheduled for August 3, should not be affected.
