Manchester United’s interim boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted that the top-four battle will go down to the wire, after Arsenal beat them 2-0 on Sunday.

Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored for the Gunners, as they leapfrogged United into fourth place.

It was Solskjaer’s first league defeat in charge of the Red Devils.

The result leaves United two points behind in fifth and three behind third-placed Tottenham.

“It’s very tight. I don’t think nerves come into it yet.

“Spurs lost, we lost, and Chelsea drew so it’s going to go down to the wire, the last few games.

“We’ve given ourselves a great chance to be in that fight, we’re two points behind fourth, three behind third which is a great position to be in,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
