Huddersfield Town fans will be hopeful that Jan Siewert’s side can give them something to cheer about in the final home game of the season as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s Manchester United side visit the John Smith’s Stadium on Sunday 5 May; 2pm kick-off.
The Head Coach and his players will want to end the Premier League season on a high, and in doing so could end Manchester United’s hopes of clinching a top four finish.
Solskjaer’s side currently sit 6th in the Premier League table, although they remain only three points behind Chelsea who occupy 4th.
The visitors had a good chance to reduce the gap between themselves and Chelsea on Sunday, but an error from David de Gea gifted the London side an equaliser and Solskjaer’s side has to settle for a share of the points.
The reverse fixture saw Solskjaer clinch a 3-1 victory in his first home game in charge of the Club in December 2018.
However, goals from Aaron Mooy and Laurent Depoitre secured an impressive victory for Town against Manchester United during the 2017/18 Premier League season.
