Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his players that they are still playing for their futures in the closing weeks of the Premier League season.
Having enjoyed initial success after taking over at Old Trafford just before Christmas, Solskjaer has seen his side's form dip in recent weeks, with the Red Devils having lost five of the last seven games they have played in all competitions.
And the former United striker says he will be monitoring things very closely in the coming weeks, with the club expected to be big movers in the transfer market in the summer.
He told reporters ahead of a Sunday trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton: "There's no hiding place and everyone can see what your level is at. The performance on the pitch will determine where they're at – if it's short term or long term.
"I've learnt a lot about them over the months I've been here. Most of them have really impressed in their attitude and some need to get a reality check of where they're at.
"But most of the players know they can improve if they keep working as they do."
United are currently in sixth place in the Premier League standings, but they are just two points behind Arsenal, who currently occupy the all-important final Champions League spot of fourth.
The Red Devils are priced at 11/4 to finish in the top four, with the Gunners available at 4/9 and Chelsea 13/8.
Meanwhile, Solskjaer also confirmed that both striker Alexis Sanchez and midfielder Nemanja Matic are back in contention for the clash with the Toffees.
