Things are looking up for Manchester United after Wednesdays 1-0 win over Watford moved them level on points with fourth-placed Manchester City and boosted their chances of Champions League qualification. Juan Matas stunning winner against the Hornets came just three days after Louis van Gaals injury-hit side secured a 3-2 victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford. It is the first time since November that they have claimed back-to-back league wins, and optimism is in the air after weeks of doom and gloom.Van Gaal insists United are still taking things step by step, but just how high can they finish? We take a look at their prospects ahead of their Super Sunday clash with West Brom live on Sky Sports… Premier League top six 2015/16 Position W D L GD Pts Leicester 16 9 3 20 57 Tottenham 15 9 4 27 54 Arsenal 15 6 7 16 51 Man City 14 5 8 17 47 Man Utd 13 8 7 11 47 West Ham 12 10 6 11 46 While United will be hoping to build some momentum on the back of their last two results, the fact remains that they have taken just 47 points from their first 28 games of the season. Ten consecutive wins would put them on 77 points, but if they continue at the same rate, they will finish the season on 64. That total would be six points lower than their tally in 2014/15, when it only would have been enough for a fifth-placed finish. It might be a different story this season given the struggles of the Premier Leagues big sides, but Van Gaal will still be hoping for considerable improvement.Remaining fixturesSo what are Uniteds chances of continuing their recent upturn in form in their remaining games? On paper, their run-in looks tricky. The Red Devils still have to travel to Man City, Tottenham and West Ham, and they also face potentially difficult home clashes against Everton and leaders Leicester. Average position of remaining Premier League opponents Team Avg position of opponents Leicester 11.9 Tottenham 10.7 Arsenal 11.7 Man City 12.3 Man Utd 9.8 The average position of their remaining opponents (9.8) is higher than any of the top four, but on the plus side their fixtures throw up plenty of opportunities to close the gap on the teams above them. United can also take heart from their impressive record against teams in the top half of the table. Marcus Rashford and Juan Mata celebrate during Uniteds win over Arsenal More ominously, however, is that United took just 16 points from a possible 30 in the reverse fixtures of their remaining games - winning four, drawing four and losing two. Repeat results would see them finish the season on just 63 points.Potential fixture worry?Another potential issue facing United is fixture congestion. Van Gaals side face Liverpool in the next round of the Europa League and host West Ham in the FA Cup quarter-finals over the next fortnight, meaning they could have as many as 11 cup games to play as well as their remaining Premier League games before the season is out. Potential remaining games (including possible FA Cup replays) Team Remaining games Leicester 10 Tottenham 17 Arsenal 21 Man City 17 Man Utd 21 Arsenal, Tottenham and Manchester City also have domestic and European commitments to consider, but Leicester have a clear run in the league having been knocked out of the FA Cup earlier this season.Injury issuesA hectic fixture list could take its toll on Uniteds depleted squad. Their injury crisis has forced Van Gaal to promote youngsters from their academy in recent weeks, and according to Physio Room they currently have 11 first-team players out injured. Chris Smalling is one of 11 Manchester United players sidelined by an injury The number of absentees limits Van Gaals options when it comes to squad rotation, so hell need the likes of Chris Smalling, Wayne Rooney, Bastian Schweinsteiger and Phil Jones to recover as quickly as possible.ConclusionThere are plenty of obstacles facing United in the final months of the season, and Van Gaal is right to be cautious. But if they can deliver more big results against their closest rivals and get some of their injured first-teamers back into action, theyll have a chance of climbing the table. A third consecutive Premier League win against West Brom on Super Sunday would provide a platform to build on.

Barrett threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to leaping receiver Noah Brown in overtime, and No. 2 Ohio State finished off No. 8 Wisconsin with a sack on fourth-and-goal from the 4 for a 30-23 win on Saturday night.Barrett also ran for two touchdowns for the Buckeyes (6-0, 3-0 Big Ten), who passed their toughest road test of the season.The touchdown throw gave Barrett his 89th career touchdown passing or rushing, breaking the school record previously held by quarterback Braxton Miller.The Buckeyes rushed the field after defensive end Tyquan Lewis sacked quarterback Alex Hornibrook to end the thriller.Just in time too, after school officials warned fans that severe weather was rolling through the area right before the final play.The Buckeyes opened overtime with Barretts touch pass to Brown in the corner of the end zone for the go-ahead score.Barrett finished 17 of 29 for 226 yards with one interception, and ran for 92 yards on 21 carries.

The Badgers had manageable third-down situations, for the most part, for Hornibrook. Wisconsin picked up another first down in the fourth quarter after faking a run before Hornibrook threw a shovel pass to tight end Troy Fumagalli for 4-yard gain. The offensive-minded Chryst showed creativity that should keep Wisconsins opponents guessing for the rest of the season.UP NEXT:Ohio State: The Buckeyes play the second of two straight night games at a tough road venue when they visit Penn State on Oct. 22.Wisconsin: There is no letup in the schedule with a trip to Iowa up next.
