MAN UTD’s season is set to come to a welcome end as the club prepare for the arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag.

United are already guaranteed to pick up their worst ever Premier League points total this campaign, following a 4-0 defeat to Brighton last week.

And they will even drop into the Europa Conference League if West Ham win both their remaining fixtures.

The Red Devils are three points ahead of the Hammers, but are the only team in the league to have just one fixture left, away at Crystal Palace next week.

Why aren’t Man Utd playing in the Premier League this weekend?

Man Utd were scheduled to play Chelsea at home this weekend, but the Blues made it to the FA Cup final against Liverpool.

Therefore, the match was rescheduled.

Why do Man Utd only have one game left this season?

Ordinarily, rescheduled games would be put back, as Chelsea’s fellow FA Cup finalists Liverpool’s match at Southampton has been.

The Reds will travel to face the Saints on the South Coast on Tuesday evening.

However, Chelsea’s coming midweek slot is filled by a re-arranged clash at home to Leicester.

Originally that game was set to take place on the weekend of February 26, but it was postponed when Thomas Tuchel’s men reached the Carabao Cup final.

As a result, Man Utd vs Chelsea was brought forward to Thursday, April 28, with the teams playing out a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

All of that means that Ralf Rangnick has just one game remaining in charge, at Selhurst Park next Sunday.
