Soton Clash: Ighalo Guns For 10th EPL Game, 1st Goal In United

The Red Devils - who finished in sixth place and without a trophy last season - will then take on West Ham United and Leicester City in their remaining two Premier League games.

"I don't think the club would panic or go insane with plans that we've already talked about for years to come", Solskjaer told reporters in a virtual news conference ahead of Monday's Premier League home game against 12th-placed Southampton.

"There's quite a lot of planning going on", Solskjaer said on Saturday.

The Red Devils are now in the fifth position on the Premier League table with 58 points from 34 matches. That obviously is determined by how far we go in Europe, so you can't really decide on the programme, the training programme.

"There are so many small decisions, transfers are out of our hands as well".

"Every game is a final and we have to get the result that we need, that's the mindset. We don't get too many injuries, so there's no reason to change too much when you're doing well".

"But, the uncertainty of dates, how much holiday can you given them, how will next season look like, it's still a little bit up in the air".

United could also qualify for the Champions League by winning the Europa League, where they hold a 5-0 advantage over LASK heading into the second leg of their last-16 tie.

"I don't think the club would panic or go insane with plans that we've already talked about for years to come", he said.

"There are loads of decisions to be made, but they make it easier by playing and performing well".

Despite becoming the first side in Premier League history to win four successive games by three clear goals, United are still fifth in the table.

Striker Mason Greenwood has had an impressive breakthrough campaign, scoring 16 goals in all competitions, and Solskjaer brushed off suggestions that the 18-year-old had exceeded expectations.

Asked if returning to the Champions League would have dramatic effect on the club in the short term, Solskjaer said: "I don't think it's like dramatic decisions, the word you said there".

"You just want to go and play football". We'll look at him and we'll look at the rest of their players and see where we can go.

"I'm not anxious about Mason this season".
