Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Manchester United to 'dominate the game' against Leicester

Spot in the Champions League up for grabs during Sunday's clash

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to get the job done in emphatic manner as his team face top-four rivals Leicester in Sunday's Champions League showdown.

As the league campaign draws to an end, United have one step left after impressively overcoming their worst start to a Premier League campaign.

Wednesday 1-1 draw with David Moyes' West Ham saw United break into the top-four for the first time since September as Leicester took their place in fifth.

It sets up a mouth-watering season finale between the top-four rivals at an empty King Power Stadium on Sunday, where Solskjaer's third-placed side will seal Champions League qualification if they avoid defeat.

"We're looking forward to the game, we've given ourselves a good chance of being in the Champions League next year but we can't go into a game thinking about what the outcome can be," the United manager was quoted as saying by the Press Association.

"We've just got to go and perform and perform at a high enough level and standard so we can get a result.

"We want to go there and dominate the game. We wanted to get this position to be able to go to Leicester and having to beat them and we're not going to change our approach.

"We want to go there and try and win the game."

A fascinating clash awaits in the East Midlands as United look to get over the line, having faced a gruelling fixture schedule due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"Focus and concentration is very, very vital in football," Solskjaer said. "When you play against quality teams, quality players, one lapse of concentration can hurt you.

"We're going to go into it with a strong frame of mind. It's not job done, we have got to this point and we have one more game in this season.

"That's this season, this is a journey for this team. This is one extra step on the journey for this team, which we've come a long way.

"Mentally I think we've shown more robustness, resilience, when we've lost the first goal in games, for example, but we've also shown the heights when everything's flowing, which you can't expect every time.

"I'm delighted with how the development looks."
