Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic is convinced his side can secure a top-four Premier League finish.

United claimed a 2-1 win over Brighton on Saturday as they maintained their perfect run under caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Old Trafford club have managed seven wins in a row since the club legend replaced Jose Mourinho in the hot seat.

United sit sixth in the standings and are now just three points behind Chelsea in fourth.

United are 2.63 to secure a top four finish and Arsenal, who are fifth level on 44 points with the Manchester outfit, are 4.33 to do the same.

Matic expects a fierce battle for Champions League qualification and he says United are up for the challenge.

“I’m happy for one more win, happy for our team and our supporters. We will try to give our best to reach the top four until the end of the season,” he said.

“The teams in front of us have quality, they will also try to play in the Champions League next season. But I’m sure that we have enough qualities to compete with them.”

The Red Devils turn their attentions to the FA Cup on Friday as they head to Arsenal and they are 2.63 to claim a victory at the Emirates Stadium and 9.00 to win the competition outright. The Gunners can be backed at 2.50 and a draw is 3.60.
