Manchester United were dealt a real top four blow last night as Wolverhampton Wanderers beat us 2-1 at Molineux Stadium.
The Red Devils’ performance massively improved from our last visit to the Midlands although unfortunately, the result remained the same…
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men simply won’t give up, though, and with six games left United have to treat each and every one like a cup final.
After the loss, the Baby Faced Assassin spoke to the media and outlined exactly how many points United need to ensure themselves a top four finish. He’s demanding five wins from six.
“We needed 15 points from seven games, now it is 15 from six – we don’t have room for many losses,” said Solskjaer per the BBC.
“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.”
That’s going to be easier said than done. We still have difficult home games against Chelsea and Manchester City, while matches against Everton and West Ham United are also going to be tough.
We simply have to get the better of Chelsea to give ourselves a shot at securing a Champions League spot for next season, but Maurizio Sarri’s men will come to the Theatre of Dreams pushing hard for a top four finish themselves.
As Solskjaer rightly says, though, we’re a good team and whoever we face, it’s going to be a tough match for them too. Hopefully, our lads don’t let this loss get them too downbeat because there is still plenty to play for…
