Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United need to win five of their last six Premier League matches to finish in the top four. United suffered their second defeat in their last three league games at Wolves on Tuesday night and could drop down to sixth in the league if Chelsea beat Brighton at home on Wednesday evening. Tottenham could go three points clear of United again and Arsenal, who are two points above United, have a game in hand. United's domestic run-in continues with the visit of West Ham on Saturday week, a trip to Everton, the Old Trafford derby with City, another home fixture against Chelsea, Huddersfield away before they host Cardiff on the last day of the season. "I've said we needed 15 points in last seven games or 18 from the last eight," Solskjaer said. "We've got three against Watford so now we need 15 in the last six. "So we don't have room for many more room for losses, no. It is a difficult run but we are a very good team, so it will be difficult for those who … [Read more...] about Solskjaer reveals Manchester United Premier League top four points target
11 November 2018 • 4:38pm Auto update On Off 4:38PM 6 mins: Man City 0 Man United 0 Lofted ball this time, looking for Sterling, Young manages to do just enough but it looks like he's in for a torrid time down there. Corner. Cleared. 4:37PM 4 mins: Man City 0 Man United 0 Ooh, lovely football. The link play and movement of Fernandino, Aguero and Silva is superb, and certainly far too good for Smalling, as they play their way around him and leave him looking as switched on and mobile as a lamp-post. Had Aguero not got the ball caught under his feet that could have been curtains. 4:36PM 3 mins: Man City 0 Man United 0 Meanwhile United's first moment of note is a long long Ashley Young freekick that is headed comfortably wide at the back post. 4:35PM 2 mins: Man City 0 Man United 0 united not allowed to have a go with this football.

3 November 2018 • 12:47pm Auto update On Off 12:47PM 17 mins - Bournemouth 1 Man Utd 0 Pogba doesn't even go in for the 50/50 aerial battle nor try to win the second ball as another punted kick from De Gea goes nowhere. Then he's trying little flicks while surrounded and squandering possession - I'm all for creativity and flair but that's exactly the position he can't do it in. 12:46PM 15 mins - Bournemouth 1 Man Utd 0 Bournemouth are by far the better team here. They're stretching the pitch in possession, getting compact out of it and the defenders are stepping forwards then breaking the lines with their forward passing. 12:42PM GOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLL!!! WILSON SCORES! What a ball by Lewis Cook! He's going back towards his own goal and spins to play a reverse pass into the runner on the right. The next pass is hit low into the area and Wilson is there to tap in! Dreadful defending from Man Utd … [Read more...] about Bournemouth vs Manchester United, Premier League: live score and latest updates
Jose Mourinho insists Manchester United should not be considered title challengers while they are outside the top four. United are eighth after winning two and drawing one of their last three Premier League matches and visit Bournemouth in their lunchtime fixture on Saturday. Should United beat Bournemouth by four goals the win would elevate them up to sixth ahead of next week's derby against City at the Etihad Stadium. United are currently nine points adrift of the Premier League champions and Mourinho believes it would be premature to start talking up a belated championship charge. "When you are outside the top four I don't think you should speak about title," Mourinho said. "When you are top four you can look up, see the distance, look to the fixtures, to the calendar, you can look to the situation at the moment, injuries, suspension, form and then you can feel it.
