Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted Manchester United's place in the Premier League’s big six will be under threat if their slide from the top of English football does not stop soon.

United lost for the seventh time in nine games after Manchester City took a significant step towards retaining their title with a 2-0 win at Old Trafford.

It left Solskjaer’s side 24 points behind their rivals and the Norwegian admitted there is a danger they could be overtaken by the likes of Wolves, Leicester and Everton in the coming years if the right decisions are not made off the pitch.

“We can’t linger along many years because the Premier League is so competitive you'll suddenly be caught up,” Solskjaer told a news conference.

“I’m concerned about lack of results and in times like this it’s not time to point fingers at anyone. We have got to stick together and the strange reality is we’re in a shout for top four.”

Roy Keane, working as a pundit on Sky Sports, criticised United’s current squad for throwing former manager Jose Mourinho “under the bus” and suggested they would do the same to his former teammate Solskjaer.

In the short-term, United, who have not kept a clean sheet for 12 games or scored from open play for nearly nine hours, have three games to book a place in the top four – a race that is still wide open after Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat to Wolves. (ESPN)
