Solskjaer embracing ‘exciting’ top four battle

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said he is going to embrace the exciting top four battle in the Premier League as the season comes into its final few months. 

The Norwegian tactician has guided the Red Devils back into contention for Champions League qualification, winning all but two of his Premier League games in charge thus far.

With three teams gunning for one spot, the race for fourth will be extremely tight, but Solskjaer is looking forward to the challenge ahead of Manchester United, who take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Wednesday night.

“Yeah, it’ll be exciting,” he said at his pre-match press conference.

“Obviously, we’ve got Chelsea at home, we’ve got Arsenal away, and Tottenham and Chelsea play each other on Wednesday. There are going to be so many games that matter in the end, because I don’t think there’ll be many points between fourth, fifth and sixth places.

“The players will have a say on how we play for the rest of the season. We need to keep going, keep progressing, keep getting results, keep getting the crowd behind us, because we need that. We need to fight from now until the end of the season.”

United currently reside in fifth place in the table, one point behind Arsenal and two ahead of Chelsea, who have a game in hand.
