Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says they cannot afford to drop any more points after a slow start to the season.

A 4-0 opening weekend win over Chelsea looked to be the platform for United to mount a consistent challenge for a top-four finish this season.

But defeat to Crystal Palace and draws against Wolves and Southampton have left United playing catch up even at this early stage.

United are seven points behind leaders Liverpool and trail this weekend’s opponents Leicester by three.

Victory at Old Trafford could move United into the top four if results go their way.

And Solskjaer feels his team need to start picking up results sooner than later.

"We want to get the results we feel we deserve," he said.

“We are coming into a busy period now, we don't want to be behind Tottenham, Chelsea or Arsenal.

"I don't want to talk too much about Leicester. I see them as a good team but Man Utd is the biggest and best club in the world.

“I’m sure they want to get into the top four like we do.

"It's a great test and a great challenge. For our players who want to push closer to City and Liverpool, here's your chance."

United’s hopes of a win have taken a major blow with Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Luke Shaw all absent.

"Well the treatment room's been busy," Solskjaer said.

"And it still is. So we don't really know who's going to be available. There's maybe Aaron [Wan-Bissaka], maybe Jesse [Lingard] and I think maybe that's it from the ones that pulled out [from national squads], but I can't promise those two will be available either.

"Leicester is always a tough game, as a team, a club wanting to push into the top four, they've got good players, a good manager, a proven top manager, Brendan [Rodgers]'s teams always play with football and we've got to play well to get the three points.

"Pogba won't be fit, no. Unless he's had a miraculous recovery overnight from yesterday to today or tonight to tomorrow, he's not been ready to do 100% training, no.

"We hope more can be ready for West Ham next week and Paul and Anthony are in that category. I think they'll be ready for then and can't say more than that really."
