- Solskjaer believes Man United still stand a chance of finishing in the top four at the end of the season
- The Norwegian branded top four rivals including Chelsea and Arsenal as bottlers after major slip ups in the recent past
- The Red Devils are scheduled to host Chelsea in a defining Premier League clash at Old Trafford
Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has reportedly branded his top four rivals "bottlers" as the race to seal a Champions League place gains momentum.
Up to four teams including United, Tottenham Hotspurs, Chelsea and Arsenal are gunning for the two places left to complete a top four finish.
Only six points are separating the four sides with just few matches left to wrap up the season, with Spurs having played an extra match.
However, in a dressing room pep talk with his wards, Solskjaer is said to have exuded confidence his side can still qualify for the European elite competition next season.
Having lost seven out of their last nine matches, United sit sixth on the standings with 64 points ahead of their tricky fixture with Chelsea on Sunday, April 28, at Old Trafford.
But Solskjaer believes both Chelsea and Arsenal will "choke" in the run-in and slip up.
After the Chelsea tie, the Red Devils have arguably the easiest matches left among the top four rivals, taking on already relegated Huddersfield and Cardiff.
The Blues face two tricky fixtures against Watford and Leicester City, with a Europa League last four clash against Frankfurt on the cards.
Arsenal on the other hand face difficult away trips against Leicester and Burnley, a home clash against Brighton and two European ties to contend with.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made it clear that he has faith in goalkeeper David De Gea despite poor form this season for the Red Devils.
The Spain international has not kept a clean sheet in 12 matches with the Red Devils conceding more nine goals in their last three games.
And on Wednesday, April 24, David De Gea continued with his unimpressive performance this season for Manchester United against City when he failed to keep out Leroy Sane's goal.
