It was always going to be a huge ask for Man United to overhaul Man City’s lead at the top of the table, but the draw with Leeds at the weekend effectively ended any faint title hopes.
It means their main chance of silverware this year is the Europa League, and they should go into the semi-final against Roma with a feeling that they can get through the tie.
Semi-finals have been a major issue for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but United have a positive record against Roma over the years, and they should also have Marcus Rashford available for the tie after the manager spoke about him in the press conference today:

Rashford’s pace and ability to come up with important goals is huge for this United side, and he provided a key moment in the last round with a sucker punch of a goal against Granada when the Spaniards were starting to build some confidence.
