Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants his Red Devils to win their remaining five games of the season to seal a top four spot.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Manchester United need to win their remaining five matches to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

Leicester’s draw against Arsenal on Tuesday night means the Red Devils now have the opportunity to leapfrog the Foxes, who they play at the King Power Stadium on the final day of the 2019-20 season.

Chelsea are now in third spot in the Premier League table, five points ahead of United, following their 3-2 win against south London side Crystal Palace.

However, Solskjaer believes his side 'can’t rely on help from anyone else' but themselves.

When quizzed whether United needed maximum points, starting with Thursday’s clash against Aston Villa, the Norwegian said as the Telegraph quoted: “Yes. I think so.

“It looks like the teams around us are playing well. If we win every one we are in the top four. We can’t rely on help from anyone else. We just have to do it ourselves.

“Sixteen games is nowhere near what a Manchester United team should strive towards."
