Solskjaer: Manchester United can't lose many more for top-four finish

2:45                                            Wolves are expecting a 'totally different' game against Manchester United this time around

Solskjaer had set his team a target of 15 points from the last seven games meaning United now need to win five of their remaining six fixtures.

"The preparation starts now for the semi-final - we will rest and prepare for a hard game".

"I thought the lads played well, created chances with 10 men as well".

Solskjaer was also forgiving of England worldwide Ashley Young, who was sent off in the second half for a reckless tackle on striker Jota.

"It is a hard run, but then we are a very good team as well so it will be hard for others who play against us as well". "This was always going to be a very tough game and the performance deserved a win".

"[It was] one of those days that we have done more than enough to score two or three goals".

Ander Herrera, who has been linked with a move away from the club, was injured while Marcus Rashford was sidelined with an ankle problem.

Rice admits West Ham 'need to do better.'
But while seventh is within touching distance, West Ham face a major battle to achieve that spot, especially on current form. West Ham have six games left to play and now sit 11th, although two points separate Manuel Pellegrini's men from seventh.

"It was a very good start, we should have been 3-0 up and we created our own downfall really", said Solskjaer.

Jota levelled after 25 minutes after Joao Moutinho robbed Fred following David De Gea's short pass and it got worse for United when Young saw red after 57 minutes for his second foul on Jota - referee Mike Dean's 100th Premier League dismissal.

Wolves have won more points against "big six" sides in the Premier League this season than any of the other 14 teams, taking 13 from games against United, Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Solskjaer bemoaned his side's mistakes by congratulated Nuno Espirito Santo's side for capitalising when it mattered.

"That's football and that's why it's the game we all love".

After his second game since being given the Old Trafford job permanently, Solskjaer was asked if the shine might be coming off his incredible start.

"Two very good results against such a good team requires a lot and the boys worked very well. I was very, very pleased with him", he said. To do it twice makes the effort worthwhile.
