Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is adamant that it would be hard for the Red Devils to contest the Premier League title with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool next season.
The former Red Devils played down high expectations from the Manchester United fans ahead of next season during his pre-match press conference before the game with basement club Huddersfield Town.
Solskjaer is expected to oversee a major rebuilding job at Manchester United later this summer and the Norwegian tactician has admitted that it would be difficult for the Red Devils to fight for the league title as early as next season.
The here and now for Solskjaer and Manchester United is finishing in the top four places at the end of this Premier League season.
The Red Devils are just five points away from third-placed Tottenham Hotspur having played a game more than the North London club and a win over Huddersfield Town on Sunday afternoon will close the gap to just two points ahead of the final day.
After the away game over bottom club, Manchester United will host Cardiff City in their last league game of the season.
Apart from Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United also have to deal with the threat of others like Arsenal and Chelsea for a top-four spot.
