Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers insists all the pressure is on Manchester United to qualify for the Champions League.

The two sides go head-to-head on the final day of the Premier League season with United needing a draw to qualify for Europe's top club competition.

"I think there is a difference where we want to be in the Champions League," Rodgers said ahead of the showdown.

@We would love to be able to do that but when you are a club like Manchester United or one of those super clubs, there is a need to be in the Champions League for many reasons.

“That is pretty clear. For us we would want to be in it. We will give everything we can. If we fall short then we have still had a really good season in the first season we have been together.

“When you are at United's level of spending and everything else there is a need to be in there and that brings a different level of expectation.

“I think whichever competition we are in, we have to improve next year, we have to improve the quality and mentality of the squad, and continue our development.

“There are resources when you get to the Champions League which are far greater but for us it has to be sustainable."
