Manchester United have named their team to face Leicester City this afternoon.
United travel knowing that a win or a draw will see them qualify for next season’s Champions League.
“You just have to trust yourself, go and enjoy it, of course be focused and prepare as well as you can, and you know that when you walk off the pitch you’ve done everything you can to help the team,” United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said. “I’m very, very happy with the focus everyone has shown during the whole period now and we’ll go into the game looking for a win.”
“We’re chasing a position in the top four and that means a position in the Champions League and everyone wants to be in the Champions League, playing against the best teams and challenging yourself. Now is not the time to think about that at all though, now it’s time to think about getting this game played and winning it.”
United skipper Harry Maguire takes his first trip back to the King Power since leaving the Foxes last summer. “We won’t be going to Leicester and playing for the draw, that’s for sure,” Maguire said on MUTV. “We’ll go into the game wanting to win it. We want to get the three points, we’ll approach it like we approach any other game. Maybe if we’re drawing in the last couple of minutes we might approach it a little bit differently but for sure we’re going to go into the game and try to get the three points. We’re sat third in the league and that’s where we want to be by the end of Sunday.”
“For this club, the gaffer keeps reiterating that the last two or three weeks of a season always decide the season really and you want to get yourselves in a position where you’re challenging for your targets. In the near future we don’t want to be challenging for the top four, we want to be challenging for the league. At the start of the season we wanted to reach the top four – a lot of people didn’t think we would come Christmas, but we’ve put ourselves in a great position now and it’s an exciting game to be involved in.”
