SOLSKJAER CONFIDENT MAN UNITED WILL FINISH IN TOP 4 DESPITE ARSENAL DEFEAT

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Manchester United still stand a chance of finishing among the top four in the Premier League.

United suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of rivals, Arsenal, on Sunday, March 10, to drop to fifth on the Premier League standings with 58 points.

The Red Devils now trail fourth-placed Arsenal by two points and are just a point better than sixth-placed Chelsea who still have a match to play.

However, Solskjaer contends United’s fate is yet to be sealed, insisting the race for a top four finish is far from over.

Nerves aren’t in it yet. You see Spurs lose, we lose, Chelsea draw so it’s going down to the wire, down to the last few games definitely,” the UK Metro quoted the Norwegian tactician.

We’ve given ourselves a great chance to be in that fight. Two points behind fourth, 3 points behind third. It’s a good position to be in,” he added.

Meanwhile, the loss at the Emirates was his first defeat in the league since replacing Jose Mourinho on interim capacity in December 2018.

The Red Devils remain in contention for two silver wares this season, including the UEFA Champions League and the FA Cup.

Meanwhile, Continentour.com.ng had earlier reported that Arsenal defeated Manchester United 2-0 to move into the Premier League top-four.

Granit Xhaka scored the first goal with a bullet of shot before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang added the second from a penalty to grab all three points.
