Manchester United finishing below Manchester City for four consecutive seasons? It’s certainly not what City fans born in the 80’s and 90’s would’ve expected in their wildest dreams, but that this precisely what will happen after United’s 2-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane took them out of the race for the CL spots.
This is the first time this has happened since the mid 1970’s- City finished ahead of United between 1972 and 1975.
2013/14- Man City 1st, Manchester United 7th
2014/15- Man City 2nd, Man Utd 4th
2015/16- Man City 4th, Man Utd 5th
2016/17- Man City guaranteed to finish in top five, United will finish sixth.
We leave you with a video from the game that ensured this stat (City finishing ahead of United for the fourth straight season)
