Ole Gunnar Solskjaer opens up on Man United Champions League fears

dailystar: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fears Manchester United will have to produce a perfect end to the season to secure a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

United travel to Aston Villa tomorrow night looking to make it five straight wins in all competitions and extend their unbeaten run to 17 games.

Solskjaer’s men have been hot on the heels of Chelsea above them in the table – and will be expected to overcome relegation-threatened Villa.

But with just five league games remaining, Solskjaer has told his stars that they will have to pick up a maximum of 15 points to make sure they secure a return to the biggest competition in Europe.

He said: “I think so, yeah. You never know what’s going to happen, but it looks like teams around us are playing well.

“There are so many games, if you win every single one we’re in the top four.

“We cannot rely on help from anyone else, we have to do it ourselves and go into next season to put other challenges into teams.”

Solskjaer, meanwhile, has warned United to be wary of summer target Jack Grealish at Villa Park.

Grealish has been on United’s radar all season and could make a summer move to Old Trafford.

The attacking midfielder scored a stunning goal against United at Old Trafford in December and Solskjaer admits he will be the danger man.

He added: “Aston Villa have shown since lockdown they can hold their own, they’ve been in tight games, the games they’ve had, they’ve worked on their shape.

“Their counters are one of the most powerful ones in the league, they spring quickly, have some good first contact players with big size.

“I think in the last game against them they caused us some problems, with Grealish off the left.

“He scored a fantastic goal, there’s been loads said about him and we need to be aware of him.

“If he’s off the left, middle or right, he attracts players to him but there’s not just one player in that Villa team, there are a lot of them.”
