With 25 league games played already, there are still 13 games to go before we close the curtain on the 2020-21 season.

The title seems to be done and dusted, as Manchester City already maintain a 10-point lead ahead of Manchester United.

The top four seems to be where the drama and tension is at, with United, Leicester City, West Ham, Chelsea, Liverpool, Everton, Tottenham, Aston Villa and Arsenal all battling for Champions League places.

With tough games coming up for everyone, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that he’s taking it one game at a time.

Speaking during his pre-match conference ahead of Sunday’s clash with Chelsea, the Norwegian noted, “We just have to focus and tick one game off at a time and, as you say, the [next] three games are massive.

“We’ve got Chelsea just behind us, we’ve got [Manchester] City away in front of us and of course we can’t let them run further away if we have ambitions of catching them and we can’t give Chelsea too much hope of catching us either.

“Every game is important and from now until the international break will be a big period. We always say, let’s look at April and May and see how we are then, so let’s get to the international break and then we can focus on the run-in.”

Solskjaer however, said it would be too early to start deciding how the campaign will pan out, as he added that he expects things to stay tight until April.

“I think it is going to be a long-running [battle in the league],” he said. “I don’t think the positions will be decided early.

“The season is unpredictable, we’ve seen teams go through bad phases and turn it around.

“Who knows what’s going to happen with injuries and with how players react to the circumstances because it is the shortest long season ever with the amount of games.”
