Solskjaer Manchester United stay possible after Molde give blessing

05 February 2019

Not many people thought Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be the next Manchester United manager before he replaced Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford and even when it happened few people thought he'd be there past May.

"With nine wins from 10 games as United's interim boss, Ole has been absolutely fantastic". That's a massive game for us because Chelsea is playing City.

Herrera believes the Premier League is too unpredictable for United to continue the run until May but, ahead of key clashes against Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Liverpool before the end of the month, the midfielder said they can win against anyone.

United only had two league clean sheets to their name full-stop under Mourinho by the time he was sacked, which underlines the scale of the improvement Solskjaer has overseen.

With Arsenal a point further back and facing champions Manchester City later on Sunday, this could prove an important result for United in their quest for a top-four finish.

"We are very happy with him at the moment, but it's not my decision to decide", he added.

'I think at the moment we are mixing very well when we receive the ball between the lines and we have to run into the space.

When City dropped points at Newcastle on Wednesday, Liverpool were given the opportunity to move seven points clear at the top. Whether the Barcelona loanee will be able to provide Emery with what he needs in central areas remains to be seen.

'I think Marcus Rashford feels free, Jesse (Lingard) feels free, Alexis (Sanchez) also, Juan (Mata) when he played the other day and he was moving everywhere.

Victor Lindelof, Nemanja Matic and Luke Shaw were all brilliant in defence, while the attacking players seemed happy tracking back and helping out their teammates.

"We're playing with a lot of freedom - this is one of the things he is talking about every day".

"If you'd have said to me when he got the job what the chances were as a percentage, I'd have said probably 25 per cent".

Two numbers: one weakness, one strength Two hundred and twenty.

United started very brightly, but went off the boil in an attacking sense for the rest of the match.
