Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has claimed that the club can still finish in the top four this season and qualify for the Champions League. He added that momentum at this stage of the year is key and the team have that.
The Red Devils are currently level on points with Arsenal in fifth place and have won their last five games in the Premier League. Caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to become the first United manager to win his first six league games.
Giggs believes that the race for the for the top four is on for the club, and they no longer have to look over their shoulders to see if other teams are close to overtaking them in the table.
He told Sky Sports, “I believe the top four is on for Manchester United. Momentum is key. When you get to this part of the season and have a bit of momentum it is hard to stop.”
“Chelsea are at Arsenal on Saturday, and we fancy ourselves against Brighton, so we could get even closer to Chelsea.”
“If you look back a month ago it was not even on the table really so to turn it around in such a short space of time, with the games we have coming up, top four is definitely the target. Rather than looking over our shoulders we are looking up and it is great to see,” he concluded.
It remains to be seen if both Arsenal and Chelsea drop points when they take face off or if one of them is able to come up trumps. Manchester United would be looking to take all three points against Brighton and Hove Albion in their encounter.
