Manchester United

Solskjaer calls for Reds fans to step up

26th April 2019, 03:41 by Michael Holland

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted the clash with Chelsea is "massive" and has called on the Manchester United fans to play their part.

United have now lost seven of their last nine games in all competitions, leaving them three points outside the top four in the Premier League.

Like Arsenal and United, Chelsea have also endured some disappointing results of late, missing their own chance to pull clear when they drew at home with Burnley on Monday night.

Maurizio Sarri's side could be feeling the pressure, and Solskjaer called on the Old Trafford crowd to turn up the heat further this weekend as they fight to make the top four.

"Sunday is a massive one," he told MUTV. "Sunday is something we have got to get ready for. The crowd has got to get ready for it, the players have got to get ready for it.

"Of course we have analysed them. Let's just make sure we turn up on Sunday with the same attitude and a little bit more quality in front of goal hopefully.

"Let's get the win that everybody wants, that the fans deserve and that the players deserve because they have made a terrific effort to give us a chance with three games to go to get in the top four."
