The Dane wants to keep the pressure up on his squad to keep them focused after they won the Capital One Cup last week.
“I still think we could at least arrive [at] 50 points,” Laudrup said.
“I think we have to do a little better than last season, to do better than 11th. We are ninth – we would like to stay there. That means 13 points more in 11 games. That should be possible.
“I admit we have some very very difficult games out there. We have to compete otherwise we could lose most of them.”
