How many places would United go up in league standings if they win their postponed game
Manchester United, like the rest of the Premier League sides, had games postponed following the death of the late Queen Elizabeth II in September.
Thanks to the uncertain schedule at the time, some teams played more games while others – including United – have one in hand.
The Red Devils’ highly-anticipated clash against Leeds United got postponed and a new date hasn’t been set yet.
After the 1-0 win over West Ham, United are now fifth in the standings:
Assuming we beat Leeds, United would go level on points with third-placed Tottenham Hotspur. However, they would still be ahead of us on goal difference.
And if the game ends in a draw, United will be level on points with Newcastle, who again have a superior goal difference.
Of course, losing the fixture would mean we stay where we are while Chelsea, who also have a game in hand, could go ahead if they win.Read more: How many places would United go up in league standings if they win their postponed game
