Manchester United manager, Ole Solskkaer has shared his side is heading to King Power to return victorious against Leicester as they look to secure a Champions League spot.
Manchester United are standing on one leg, placed third on the league table as they sit just one point ahead of 5th placed Leicester City who they prepare to battle on Sunday.
A win at King Power Stadium will seal the Red Devils UEFA Champions League qualification after missing out three seasons of Europe’s most honored competition.

Sharing points with the Foxes will leave the Red Devils at 64 points and as well help push bitter-rivals, Chelsea automatically into the Champions League.
Meanwhile, a loss will have to depend on Chelsea losing to Wolverhampton for the Red Devils to finish in the top four along side Leicester City.
“We’re looking forward to the game; we’ve given ourselves a good chance of being in the Champions League next year,” Solskjaer told reporters via a video call on Friday.
“We can’t go into a game thinking about what the outcome could be. We just have to go and perform, and perform to a high enough level for us to get a result.Embed from Getty Images
“We want to go there and dominate the game – we wanted to get to this position, having to go Leicester to need to beat them.
“We’re not going to change our approach. We want to go there to try to win the game.”
The Norwegian went on to emphasize on how crucial mental development can be to his squad ahead of the clash with Leicester City.
“Well, focus and concentration are very important in football,“ Solskjaer added. ”When you play against quality teams and players, one lapse of concentration can hurt you.Embed from Getty Images
“We’re going to go into it with a strong frame of mind and it’s not job done. We have one more game in this season and that’s just this season.
“That’s a journey for this team, it’s one extra step.
“We have come a long way mentally and we’ve shown more resilience and robustness when we’ve lost the first goal in games, for example, but we’ve also shown the heights, which you can’t expect every time. I’m delighted with the development.”
