Manchester United are juggling a tough Premier League run-in but have guaranteed a top-four finish as they welcome a Leicester City side still nervy about their own Champions League hopes. A win at Aston Villa was the start of a run of three games in five days for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer & Co. culminating with the rescheduled visit of Liverpool on Thursday. Leicester went down 4-2 at home to Newcastle but West Ham’s own defeat to Everton have given them some much-needed breathing space in their bid to finish fourth or higher.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would love to go full throttle against Leicester but says it is "impossible" as he needs to make changes to balance player welfare and priorities at the midway point of Manchester United's five-day triple-header. Having sealed their place in the Europa League final on Thursday, the Red Devils came from behind to win 3-1 at Aston Villa on Sunday to wrap up back-to-back top-four finishes for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson retired.
