Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has claimed he relishes the battle for Champions league places and has named seven teams in the race for a top-four finish.

The Norwegian believes Leicester City, Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolves, Spurs, Sheffield United and Arsenal are in contention for a top-four finish.

We face Brighton on Tuesday night five points adrift of fourth-placed Chelsea, but the Norwegian believes we are still in contention.

“I think there are many teams for that battle for third-fourth [spot],” said Solskjaer.

“Leicester, Chelsea, us, Wolves doing really well, Tottenham, Arsenal and Sheffield United wanna put a run together and put a challenge in there.

“It’s exciting for fans, been waiting for football that matters, we want fans in the stadiums but at least now we can sit back and watch some exciting games.”

He added: “I think every year you’re in the Champions League is a great experience, for the players it’s a step forward.

“For us it’s what we’re striving to do winning trophies and we need to focus on one game at a time and there are so many teams that want that place.

“We can’t get distracted about looking too far ahead and onto the next one.”
