Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident his side will be “100-per-cent fresh” for their critical match with Leicester City on Sunday. The gap between the two sides are just one point and two places.

The Foxes are fifth with 62 points, while the Red Devils are third with 63 points. They will lock horns on Sunday, at King Power Stadium as both sides are eyeing a Champions League place for next season.

Chelsea sit between the two in fourth on 63 points. Frank Lampard’s team faces Wolverhampton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge.

Solskjaer insists fitness will not be a problem against Leicester. He said: “We’ve not been dealt the best of hands with the recovery times in the last couple of weeks, but that’s because we’ve been in the FA Cup.

“That’s how it is, but we’ve got three days now. The extra day before Sunday will make us 100-per-cent fresh. We’ve given ourselves a great opportunity. We wanted to give ourselves the chance to head there and get into the Champions League by beating them (Leicester).

“Now, we’d be OK with a draw, but we’ll be going there to win. You’ll prepare as you always do to go and win the game.”
