Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says it will be a "miracle" if his side finish in the Premier League top four.
They are seventh and eight points off a Champions League place after Saturday's 2-2 draw at Southampton.
United, whose last league win was on 3 November, host fourth-placed Arsenal on Wednesday.
Before the 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace on 24 November, Mourinho said United could break into the top four by the end of December.
But speaking to Brazilian television network RedeTV about the club's ambitions after the Saints result, the Portuguese said: "Try to win as many points as possible and try almost the miracle to end in fourth."
