Manchester United's top four ambition a disappointment in itself - Young

Manchester United's top four ambition a disappointment in itself - Young

Manchester United fans have laid into their team after the club missed out on a Premier League top four place and Champions League football with a paltry 1-1 draw to already relegated Huddersfield on Sunday. Arsenal's hopes hang by a thread due to an inferior goal difference to Tottenham, but Manchester United are officially out, ending their run in the Champions League. Every other football club in the country I can tell you who's in charge of signings, I haven't got a clue at Manchester United.

So Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has a decision to make - convince Pogba to deliver excellence more consistently, or cut his losses and sell him to suitors Real Madrid.

United were gifted an early opener when Scott McTominay's shot somehow found its way though keeper Jonas Lossl.

However, he made amends on the hour mark when he launched a long ball upfield - following a poor United corner - which Luke Shaw failed to intercept and Isaac Mbenza coolly slotted past David De Gea.

The result caps a miserable season for United, who have slumped again after an initial upturn in form following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's arrival in place of Jose Mourinho.

"Obviously we drew the game but it's just not good enough".

"We didn't perform to the required level, and though we are all disappointed not to be in the Champions League next season".

"I trained, I tried to make it hard [for Zidane], but there was a time where I realised that [playing regularly] was impossible, "Ceballos said on Radio MARCA". The table seldom lies at the end.

"The Europa League is also a very important competition and we want to win it because we think we deserve to a trophy this season".

"We've got regular meetings, I'm happy with the way it's going".

But Glenn Murray equalised for Brighton, who only guaranteed their safety last weekend, with a spot kick of his own in the 61st minute.

After asking if anybody actually wanted to finish in the top four over the past few weeks, we got a definitive answer on Sunday.

Loftus-Cheek and Luiz scored three minutes apart early in the second half with Higuain adding some last insurance.

"We might not be and you'd be surprised how many players' agents have been touting their players, telling us that their players would love to be a part of Man United in the future", Solskjaer said.
