Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has refuted claims that his side are inconsistent, with the Red Devils winning three of their past five Premier League matches.

Manchester United Not Inconsistent According to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

The Red Devils Boss Says That His Players ‘Are on the Right Track’

In an interview with Sky Sports, Solskjaer stated: “For consistency, you need to look at more than just two or three games.

“You need to be looking at 10, 20, 30, 40.”

Asked about his side’s response to going 2-0 down at Southampton, Solskjaer said: “You’re not going to be able to play on the counter-attack against a team that’s leading two-nil, but we managed to break them down through different types of attacks and different types of football.

“We’ve got some exceptional pace on the break and when we have to drop deep and defend, we know we can use that. But we want to be on the front foot. With Bruno coming in, we’re managing to break teams down more often.”

A mixed start to their 2020/21 season means United are currently in ninth place in the Premier League. They must also beat RB Leipzig away from home next week to progress to the Champions League knockout stages, after falling to a 3-1 defeat against Paris Saint-Germain at Old Trafford.

However, Solskjaer believes that United are continually improving under his tutelage, stating: “I think we’re getting better and better in our pressing,” he says. “The coaches have done some fantastic sessions on that. It’s about tactical work and fitness, but also attitude and being on the front foot.

“If you are able to press with the talent we have, then you know you are getting somewhere with the culture as well.

“I’ve got some great headaches and challenges every time I pick a squad – never mind a team,” says the Norwegian.

“I’ve been here so long so I feel I know everything there is to know about the pressure at Manchester United.”

Although Solskjaer may not seem to be under any pressure, BILD have reported that PSG boss Thomas Tuchel has been viewed as an ideal replacement for the 47-year-old should he be sacked.
