Ole Gunnar Solskjaer predicts where Man United will finish
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rates Man United's chances of finishing in the top four this season
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Manchester United have got a “mountain to climb” in their bid to finish in the top four this season.
The Red Devils were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea FC at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon as they dropped yet more points in the race for Champions League qualification.
Manchester United have struggled to find consistent form in the top flight in recent weeks and they are facing an uphill battle to try and break back into the top four.
They currently find themselves in sixth place in the Premier League table and three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea FC with two games left to play this season.
Manchester United will take on Huddersfield Town and Cardiff City in their remaining two games this season.
And although Solskjaer has admitted that the Red Devils have it all to do in the top-four race, he has challenged his side to do what it takes to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
Speaking in an interview quoted by Manchester United’s website on Sunday, Solskjaer said: “I don’t think we can give up until it’s theoretically over, but of course it’s a big mountain to climb.
“We need to focus on those last two games, do our best for ourselves, win games and see what the other games throw up.
“The end of a season throws up a few marginal decisions, strange results, so anything can happen.
”We still want to finish the season on a high and let’s see where that takes us now. Let’s see how many points we can get.”
Manchester United are aiming to break back into the top four after Solskjaer was brought in as Jose Mourinho’s successor at Old Trafford back in December.
