We need to get back to what we were – Ole

2 min read

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United need to get back to what they were starting to look like after his side fell to a 2-0 defeat to rivals Manchester City.

An early Eric Bailly own goal and a smart finish from Bernardo Silva just before half time was enough for City who controlled the game from start to finish.

United struggled to make their mark on the game as they fall to another home defeat. Solskjaer’s side were humiliated 5-0 by Liverpool two weeks ago and this result will just add to the pressure on the United manager.

Speaking to Sky Sports after the defeat, the Norwegian said: “We need to get back to what we started to look like for a while, and we’ve got the players to do that.

“We’ve been in this situation a few times of course, since the last game we played here it has been a very difficult period. We need to be on the front foot more, I can’t look at myself and say this is the way I want Manchester United to play.”

Solskjaer was then asked if he felt he was on borrowed time at Old Trafford to which he replied: “No, I don’t’ start to do that. I have good communications all the time with the club, we’re very upfront and honest about the situation. I work for Man Utd and want the best for Man Utd and while I’m here I’ll do what I can to improve this, and that’s going back to what we started to look like.”
