It will be a breathtaking battle for 3rd and 4th place that gives Champions League games. Before the decisive matches, Ole Gunnar Solskjær says that Manchester United have received the worst cards.
– I’m obviously worried that they’ve had 48 hours more than us. It is not fair, says Ole Gunnar Solskjær, and refers to the match program that awaits in the coming weeks.
The 2019/20 season is coming to an end, and a lot is at stake. Liverpool became league champions a long time ago, Manchester City have long taken 2nd place and also won with their appeal in the Sports Arbitration Court (CAS).

Chelsea were in action on Tuesday when they beat Norwich 1-0. In other words, the London team will have two extra days to rest before the meeting with Manchester United on Sunday.

Solskjær’s boys could have placed themselves in a much better position before the hectic end of the season, but the victory missed six minutes of overtime against Southampton. With a win in that match, Manchester United would have been in third place in the Premier League, but this was not the case:
They could have been ahead of both Chelsea and Leicester – who both went on big losses this weekend. Chelsea lost 3-0 to Sheffield United, while Leicester collapsed overall against Bournemouth.
Solskjær & co. but still has everything in their own hands. In the final round of the series, they face Leicester. In other words, United qualify for next season’s Champions League if they win their remaining matches.
– We have not exactly received the best cards in the next two weeks. But we have to set the poker surface and play our cards in the right way, says the Norwegian and adds:
– The next two weeks will be hectic, but at the same time we are in very good physical shape. We have not been so well trained in many years, I’m sure. We have some young players who are better trained than usual and who want to recover faster.
At the time of writing, Chelsea stand with 63 points after 36 games, while both Leicester and Manchester United have 59 points, but one game less played.
