Solskjaer convinced Man Utd 'have enough' to get job done against Leicester despite 'draining' season
The Norwegian told reporters: "I think confidence levels have to be high, we've given ourselves a great chance going into last game. When the last game of the season is in front of you you expectplayers to have bruises, aches, tiredness...that’s natural for every player.
"Even though this season has been different it's still been a draining one for everyone. We have enough energy for 90 minutes, well more, because there will be injury time as well.
"We've got enoughbut having been so far behind with the restart we had to go for it, go for goals, go for points and it's been a great effort by everyone to get into this position with one game to go."
It's been some turnaround for a United side who beganthe campaign with their worst start to a season for 30 years and with many having ruledthem out of top-four contentionbefore Christmas.
Since the restart, however, they’ve gone unbeaten in the league and Champions League qualification is now in their hands. Solskjaer added: "Many, many factors, many reasons have contributed to the turnaround,belief being one of them.
"If you look at that game against Burnley we should have won that one, that's football and Premier League for you, you have to take your chances.
"I think the belief, the confidence, the change of atmosphere, Bruno Fernandes coming in has made a massive difference, we've got our best players fit and raring to go, it's been many different reasons for the upturn but it's been down to the work.
"They have trusted us, that they can, step by step, believe and trust in what we have said and the boys have worked really hard, the fitness levels and the mental robustness is so much better than last season."
While finishing third behind champions Liverpool and Manchester City would mark a relatively good campaign for United, Solskjaer is aware they haven’t secured that spot yet and has called for a strong performance from his team at the King Power Stadium.
He said: "One lapse of concentration can hurt you. We're going to go into it with a strong frame of mind - we have one more game this season, this is a journey for this team, this is one extra step on the journey.
"We've come a long way mentally, shown more robustness, resilience. We'velost the first goal in games, we've also shown the heights when everything's flowing, I'm delighted with how the development looks.
"We're looking forward to the game, given ourselves a good chance of Champions League next year but we can't go into it thinking about the outcome, we've just got to perform at a high enough level and get the result.
