Manchester United’s title challenge built momentum through April and saw Skinner’s pick up three vital league wins alongside a FA Cup semi-final victory. His side followed up their incredible 4-0 victory over Brighton with a determined 1-0 victory over Arsenal and a then secured a last gasp 3-2 win over Aston Villa thanks to Millie Turner’s injury time header.
