Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat at Wolves makes it ‘harder’ for the club to finish in the Premier League’s top four.
Scott McTominay had given United the lead at Molineux, who finished with 10-men following Ashley Young’s dismissal, but goals from Diogo Jota and a Chris Smalling own goal consigned United to a second league defeat in three fixtures.
Defeat leaves United fifth, outside of the top four on goal difference having played a game more than the side’s around them, and manager Solskjaer admits the club face a difficult task to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
“We needed 15 points from seven games, now it is 15 from six – we don’t have room for many losses,” Solskjaer told his post-match press conference.
“It is harder than it was before, but we’re a very good team, so it will be difficult for the teams who play against us.”
United next face Spanish champions Barcelona in their Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford on April 10.
