Mohamed Salah willing to 'sacrifice' Champions League dream for Premier League glory

Salah happy to win EPL over Champions League

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer defended goalkeeper David De Gea after he saw his unbeaten Premier League streak ended at Arsenal on Sunday.

Manchester United's Chris Smalling applauds the fans after the Premier League match at the Emirates.

It wasn't a ideal performance by any means, but like Tottenham last week, we again looked solid and the players again showed the necessary fight required as we go for the top 4.

Arsenal on Sunday, March 10, 2019, defeated Manchester United by two goals to nil with Granit Xhaka scoring in the 12th-minute and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scoring from the spot on a controversial call at the 69th minute to make it 2-0.

"The performance was good, but the result was disappointing. we lost and missed the chance to put pressure on Spurs", Solskjaer said.

Chelsea have a game in hand, against Brighton, and sit three points behind Arsenal and one adrift of United in the quest for that final Champions League place.

Also standing out was Granit Xhaka who, after giving us the lead, gave the sort of midfield performance we have been crying out for from him, with him putting himself about in the centre of the park and providing defensive cover when needed.

"David is too professional to let his mind wander", Solskjaer said in his post-match press conference.

The graphic below shows the average number of points for each league position after 30 games in red, compared with the current totals in green - revealing how the top six clubs have broken away from the rest of the pack.

"So, I am happy to sacrifice my dream for their dream but if we win both that would great and this is what we are trying to do".

"All you can do is win your games and hopefully they will fail in one so we can win the title".

Lingard celebrated a goal in United's 3-1 FA Cup fourth-round win at Arsenal earlier in the year by dancing in front of the Gunners supporters.

"We are in the top four and the other teams now wait for our mistakes". "They gave all they could against the best team at this moment".
