Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Manchester United are in danger of slipping even further down the Premier League unless his players improve and is resigned to missing out on the title again next season.

United have not won any of their last five games in all competitions - losing three - and end their season with a home clash against Cardiff City next week.

"It's just how they will do in this 25 minutes".

Isaac Mbenza cancelled out Scott McTominay's first-half opener for United, who twice hit the crossbar through Paul Pogba.

Pogba's header against the bar could have put United further in front, but it was Huddersfield who came out for the second half with added impetus, going close through Grant in the 52nd minute. However, De Gea spread himself well to block a weak finish with his legs.

"It is not what we want but that is the reality".

Shaw's terrible error in trying to cut out a long clearance from Lossl presented Mbenza with the chance to get off the mark in England, which he duly took, firing through the legs of David de Gea.

"We've ended up with the last hope being taken away". De Gea is on the verge of entering the final year of his contract. There is still no technical director in place, leaving Solskjaer to orchestrate the recruitment drive alongside executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. The defence has conceded a goal in each of their past 14 games: United's worst run since 1970. The flop forward was one of just two United outfield starters not to register a shot, along with defender Ashley Young.

"I know Manchester United is something players would love to experience", he said.

"I'm an optimist by nature and you make the most of it".

"You see the teams who get two or three years together, they know each other, they know the relationships. A group of players that looked like individuals, nothing there, no real spirit and he dismantled it piece by piece, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer needs to dismantle this piece by piece".

"At least you can identify with them".

The result leaves United fifth in the Premier League and four points behind Chelsea, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.

They've averaged around 70 points a season since 2013, and this year Liverpool could rack up 97 and still finish second. "Watch this Huddersfield team, they haven't got the quality, but I like watching them a lot more than watching the ones in the red shirts to be honest with you", Neville said. Robin van Persie in 2012?

For Solskjaer, there is one more game left to suffer through this season when Cardiff visit Old Trafford next Sunday and after that, there will be talk of optimism and fresh starts. History suggests it will not be the last, either.
