Solskjaer backs De Gea after Manchester United’s Champions League hopes hit

Maurizio Sarri Chelsea 2018-19

But De Gea spilled Antonio Rudiger's long-range effort allowing Marcos Alonso to tap in to pull Chelsea level.

Real have a guaranteed place in Europe's prime competition next season, something that Hazard's current club can not boast currently.The English side lie in 4th place on 68 points with 2 games to go, 2 points ahead of Arsenal and 3 ahead of Manchester United as they look to get back into the Champions League after a season in the Europa League.

Both are teams filled with experienced global players, and elite managers who have been linked with the Chelsea job in the not too distant past.

Chelsea are in pole position for fourth, two points ahead of Arsenal, with United's chances now looking slim - they are a point behind Arsenal with a significantly inferior goal difference.

He was at fault once again at Old Trafford against the noisy neighbours on Wednesday night, during a 2-0 defeat which has left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men languishing three points behind Chelsea in the race for a top-four finish.

During his post-match interview, Hazard further reinforced speculation through a challenging statement aimed at his club, as he claimed that he intends to play in the Champions League next season.

If Manchester United fail to reach the top four, a lot of pressure will suddenly be placed on the club to ensure they keep their best players, which includes the Spain global (recent form aside). "I think we have done a good season". "We support each other", the manager said after the draw with Chelsea.

"David knows he could have done better with the goal, there's no reason to hide that, but there's no chance any of us will point fingers because he's saved us so many times". However, that just makes our 1-1 draw against Chelsea all the more disappointing, as a win would have seen us finally move up the table.

United's hopes of qualifying for next season's Champions League are now out of their hands but Lukaku, who has failed to find the net in his last six starts but put in a strong showing against the Blues, remains optimistic.

De Gea has been involved in a contract stand-off with United for the past 18 months and will enter the final year of his current deal this summer.

This could certainly develop in the next few weeks.
