Shaw ‘can’t see why’ Manchester United won’t finish in the top four

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw believes his side have every chance of finishing in the top four this season.

The Red Devils sacked Jose Mourinho last week after making their worst start to a season in 28 years, with club legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer taking over as caretaker boss until the end of the campaign.

Manchester United put in their best display in a long long time during Solskjaer’s first game in charge, a 5-1 away win against Cardiff City, and England international Shaw reckons if his side can maintain that type of form they have a great chance of qualifying for next seasons Champions League.

“Of course we want the top four, we want to be playing in the Champions League next season,” Shaw told reporters after his sides victory in South Wales.

“Seeing the way we played, I don’t see why we can’t if we keep playing like that.

“There’s a very long way to go and we need to focus on how to catch up.

“We’re not too focused on the other teams’ scorelines at the moment.

“The main focus is us and the next four or five games are very winnable.

“But we can’t really be dropping points now with the situation we’re in.

United are currently eight points behind fourth placed Chelsea and face Huddersfield in their next Premier League fixture at Old Trafford on Boxing Day.
