Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his players against being complacent ahead of Monday’s game against Southampton.

“We’ve had an up and down season,” Solskjaer said as cited by Sports Mole. “We started fantastically well against Chelsea, got a great win, played some very good football.

“Then we got a setback and of course I think the players have stuck to the task in hard times, difficult times, believed in coaches, believed in what we’re trying to do and trusted us when results haven’t gone great.

“We just want to keep on working and now the results are coming, the excitement is coming, now it’s time to keep your feet on the ground, keep working, keep doing the right things.

“Don’t believe in all the hype or the praise. That’s not their job. Their job is to perform when they play, same as don’t believe in all criticism when you don’t do well.

“Trust your team-mates, trust yourself and now you can see the end is not too far away. It’s a strange one because we’ve been out for so long. It’s only four games left of the season so the goal is getting close.”

With four games remaining, the Red devils are just one point behind the fourth-placed Leicester and two points behind third-placed Chelsea. A win will see us leap into the top-four.
