Man Utd can expect tight top-four battle.

Manchester United winger Antonio Valencia warns his team-mates ahead of a tough top-four fight in the Premier League.

The Red Devils are currently in the final Champions League spot in the league table, point above Arsenal and three points ahead of Maurico Pochettino’s Tottenham.

Louis van Gaal’s side have lost once in 13 Premier League matches and Valencia who has played as a wing-right-back most of the time this season reckons securing a Champions League spot this season will involve a tough battle with other teams.

“It’s very open and quite tight in those top spots,” Valencia told ahead of their home clash vs Leicester City on Saturday.

“We’re seven points behind second place and then a couple of teams are three or four points below us.“We must fight hard in the remaining games to finish as high as possible. It’s a long season and we’ve picked ourselves up of late, so we need to keep the results coming for the fans.

“We’ve got tough games coming up against very good teams and rivals for our position but, if we keep the concentration high, we can achieve our aim of a top-four finish.”
