Paul Scholes tips Manchester United to secure top-four spot

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes believes his former club can cement a top-four spot in the Champions League as long as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer resists the temptation to rotate his team in the remaining matches. 

United closed the gap between them and Chelsea following the victory over Brighton in midweek. Meanwhile, Chelsea suffered a 3-2 loss with the Red Devils reducing the point gap to two. And Scholes has backed his former side to qualify for the Champions League as long as Solskjaer doesn't boast a strong enough squad to take anything for granted during the remaining games. 

Speaking to BBC, Scholes said, "I think they will (finish in the top four). They are going to have to win every game to do it but you look at the fixtures they are very winnable."

"If Ole can keep this team fit, the first XI that played the other night, I don’t see a reason why not. ‘I don’t think the squad is massively strong where he can leave players out and afford to give people rest for the FA Cup or the Europa League as it was." 

"He needs to play his best team from now until the end of the season I think they’ll have a great chance."
