Solskjaer aiming to keep Manchester United in the Top Four for ‘a long time’

Manchester United finally moved into the top four yesterday, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t planning on relinquishing that place any time soon.

It has been one hell of a turnaround for the 20 time Champions of England under Solskjaer, who when he took over the club in December, found his side 11 points behind fourth placed Chelsea.

However, eight wins and a draw, combined with a disappointing run of form from Chelsea and Arsenal, have seen Manchester United incredibly overhaul that deficit, with the 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday moving them into the top four for the first time since Matchday one.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, caretaker manager Solskjaer said that he wants his side to continue their ascent up the Premier League table.

“At the moment I am just concentrating on getting us up the table. Now we are fourth and let’s hope we can stay there for a long time,” the Norwegian said.

“Not for too long as we want to get higher up of course but now we have taken that step into the top four.

“The next league game is Liverpool, which is fantastic to look forward to and of course we have a couple of nice games between that. We have to do everything ourselves, we can’t rely on anyone’s help, so we will just carry on the way we do.”

Next up for United is PSG in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, before they face Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup the following Monday.
