“We’ll be going there to win” – Solskjaer sends out a clear message to Leicester ahead of crucial clash

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer keen to finish the job against Leicester City

According to Leicester Mercury, Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going into the crunch clash against Leicester City with the intention of getting all three points.

The standout game of the final day of the 2019-20 campaign sees a winner-takes-all clash between the Foxes and the Red Devils in the race for top four.

A draw will be enough to see us secure a spot in Europe’s top table. Solskjaer, however, is not happy to settle for a point.

“We’d be OK with a draw, but we’ll be going there to win”

The three-month hiatus in the season has changed the fortunes of both the clubs. Once seen as favourites for the third spot, Brendan Rodgers’ side now sit fifth.

United, on the other hand, have risen up the table and currently occupy the third spot. Having given ourselves the opportunity to regain Champions League football, it is now up to the squad to finish it off this Sunday.

“We’ve given ourselves a great opportunity. We wanted to give ourselves the chance to head there and get into the Champions League by beating them.”

United have looked off the pace in their last two games. There have been suggestions made that the team is currently running on empty fuel tanks.

Solskajer believes that is not the case and expects his players to be at their best. The extra Saturday could make all the difference as his players rest and recuperate.

“We’ve got three days now. The extra day before Sunday will make us 100-per-cent fresh.”

The Foxes have endured a tough time since the restart. They will also be without James Maddison and Ben Chilwell, who are both out injured.
