Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks there are five teams, including Manchester United, fighting for the final two Champions League qualifications spaces in the Premier League.

The Norwegian thinks Liverpool and Manchester City are a level above the rest of the league as they have already taken up the top two spots in the first seven matches of the season.

Leicester City find themselves third in the league at this early stage and Solskjaer has tipped Brendan Rodgers’ side to challenge for a top four position along with United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal.

“The top two last season were too far ahead from the rest of us,” said Solskjaer.

“But I think we should be in and around the places behind there. Chelsea are going through a similar period of rebuilding.

“There’s Arsenal, Tottenham, us, you’ve got Leicester. There are loads of teams wanting those positions and that’s where we’ll be, in and around.”
