Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Chelsea and Leicester City that his Manchester United team are up for the fight in the battle for a top-four finish after beating defending champions Manchester City at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Manchester United are just three points behind fourth placed Chelsea and five points behind third placed Leicester City.

“With all the clean sheets we have been getting it’s impressive, we are getting better,” Solskjaer said.

“With Brandon Williams and Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the flanks we looked aggressive as a 3-5-2, but in the second half we were made to look more like a 5-4-1. City are so good on the ball, but we kept them at bay.

“At any moment they could score so I was always looking for a second goal. We had three chances to square with only the goalkeeper to beat. That’s one thing to improve – our decision-making – but we are learning.

“It’s a privilege to be their manager. They give absolutely everything. They know they are all good players but they want to learn as well.

“We feel we are improving as a squad and a team. We feel the fans want us to do well and they see what we are doing, so it is getting better and better.

“But we are still fifth. We need points to catch Chelsea and Leicester, so need to keep plugging away.”
