EPL: Why Solskjaer has told Manchester United to sell Martial

Gary Neville has called for Manchester United to be "cleansed" in order to have any hope of challenging Manchester City and Liverpool for titles in the future, in a withering assessment of the club's current malaise.

This was the case when they last missed out on Champions League qualification before Jose Mourinho's arrival in 2016.

Ashley Young, the captain of Manchester United has accepted the fact that not being able to defeat Huddersfield and then missing out on the qualifications of Champions League isn't just good enough.

"Hasty or not, regrets or not, they made the decision to appoint Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as permanent manager on a three-year contract".

"We want to be in the top four at the end of the season".

The Gunners will carry a 3-1 lead into Thursday's second leg of their semi-final away to Valencia.

Arsenal poured forward in search of a victor but Aubameyang volleyed wide from close range and Brighton goalkeeper Mat Ryan made several fine saves to keep them at bay.

"We haven't managed to get ourselves in the top four", Young added. "The Europa League is probably the right place for us at the moment".

He ranted: "Watch this Huddersfield team, they haven't got the quality".

The French worldwide, 23, has scored just 12 goals in 37 appearances.

United's failure to qualify will have consequences for the squad, as Solskjaer indicated immediately after the game.

"There is a chance you have seen the last of players", said Solskjaer after Huddersfield claimed a first point since February.

Chelsea were assured of a place in next season's Champions League after London rivals Arsenal were held to a 1-1 draw by Brighton at the Emirates on Sunday.

The draw sees the Reds' winless run in all competitions stretch to five matches and also cements their recent reputation as lacklustre finishers to Premier League campaigns.
