Manchester United can't afford any more slip-ups, says Matic

This weekend's 2-1 FA Cup quarter-final defeat at Wolves followed a 2-0 loss at Arsenal last week to leave United's season in danger of derailing.

Back-to-back defeats in the FA Cup and Premier League have sapped much of the momentum from Manchester United's revival under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but midfielder Nemanja Matic says a top-four finish is still in their sights.

"Of course I want him to stay, for me to say anything else would be ridiculous", Carrick said to the Manchester Evening News.

The former England global and strike-partner of Solskjaer at Old Trafford has claimed that the club have already secured Solskjaer future, before admitting that he has no idea when the club will make the news public.

Sheringham told BBC 5Live of his former teammates' managerial future at United (as quoted by The Mirror): "I've heard they've given it to him already".

Lastly, the 45-year-old asked his players to look back and analyse their own individual performances during the global break, and learn from their mistakes.

"Maybe we lost confidence, maybe things went wrong", he said. "We're better now and the results have been brilliant".

Sanchez has failed to impress since arriving at Old Trafford from Arsenal back in January of past year, managing just three goals in 29 Premier League appearances.

The striker's best return so far was scoring a brace during United's historic comeback victory vs PSG in the Champions League. Nearly everybody at United is on duty.

United's last chance of lifting a trophy now is in the Champions League, where they face Barcelona in the quarter-finals.
