Erik ten Hag insists nobody at is thinking about the title race and says his players should focus on remaining in the hunt for trophies until late April.

United are the only club left in England fighting for four trophies and they face another testing seven days on three fronts.

The Red Devils take on at Old Trafford in the Premier League today, looking to go within five points of leaders Arsenal.

On Thursday, United host Barcelona in the second leg of their play-off.

Next Sunday, Ten Hag has the chance to get his hands on silverware as United take on Newcastle United at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final.

With Arsenal and City both dropping points this week, United can make it a three-horse race with a win against Leicester.

But Ten Hag says his side shouldn’t look to far ahead, only at the next game as that is the ‘most important’.

Asked about United’s title chances, Ten Hag told Sky Sports: ‘I can understand the question but we go from game to game, focusing on the next game because it’s the most important game.

‘What we have to do is in April or the end of April we have to put ourselves in a position where we can win trophies. Nothing else.’

Marcel Sabitzer and Lisandro Martinez are set to return to the starting XI for today’s clash against Leicester.

The pair missed Thursday’s 2-2 draw against Barcelona through suspension.

Casemiro serves the last of his three-match ban.
