"Man United will grind out results to get second".
The fixture schedule has been kind on Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur this weekend with both clubs having the opportunity to put the squeeze on Chelsea in the battle to finish the season in the Premier League's top four.
The prize of staying in the Premier League and the bonuses managers get when they achieve that relatively modest "success" is now damaging the game as most teams are simply trying not to lose rather than a win.

"Liverpool are the closest team to be challenging Manchester City", he told The Debate.
Merson, Nicholas and Le Tissier all plumped for the Blues while Thompson suggested "Chelsea are looking particularly vulnerable".
"City are obviously far away but for the second, third and fourth spot there are five teams so it will be hard until the last match of the season".
"It is going to be a monumental run-in, but Chelsea now have to go on a run, hopefully starting with something, even a point against Man City at the weekend".
With City boasting a 13-point lead and another game in hand against Arsenal to come, one of the few competitive betting heats involving the elite clubs could be who will take second place.
Liverpool fans were hoping Spurs would drop points at Crystal Palace on Sunday and they very almost did, yet the image of the Premier League is tarnished when we see the kind of tactics used by Eagles boss Roy Hodgson succeeding.
