Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that the Red Devils could fall behind in the race for the top-four should results not begin to improve.
They head into this weekend’s clash with Leicester City having only picked one win from their opening four games of the Premier League season, leaving them in eighth position.
Solskjaer has told that this weekend’s game will be a tough one but one that they have to target a win if they harbour any hopes of returning to the UEFA Champions League next season.
Talking in his pre-match press conference, the Norwegian said: “Leicester is always a tough game. It’s a team and a club that is wanting to push for the top four I’m sure. They have got good players and a very good manager, that’s a proven top manager.
“Brendan’s teams always play good football and we will have to play well to deserve three points. We want to get the results we feel we deserve. We are coming into a busy period now, we don’t want to be behind Tottenham or Chelsea or Arsenal.”
United can currently be backed at a price of 6/4 with Betfred to achieve a top-four finish this season.
