Solskjaer urges not to get swept away with leadership

The head coach of Manchester United insists that the team should not think about leadership in the Premier League.

After a nondescript start to the season and elimination from the Champions League, Manchester United are seriously aiming for the first place in the English Premier League. After Boxing Day, the Red Devils got close to Liverpool, which were in first place and had a match in reserve.

With 33 points each, United came in better shape for the postponed match with Burnley. It allowed them to get ahead of their competitors in the standings and take the clean first line. But despite this, the Norwegian coach Ole-Gunnar Solskjaer insists not to be fascinated by the results, but to continue working,

“We should not delude ourselves and think that we are the first in the Premier League. We need to work hard and not assume for a second that we have already figured it out. Manchester United have players who can dictate their game to their opponents and take the initiative.

It doesn't matter where we end the season. Now we need to focus on the upcoming match only ” Solskjaer told the BBC.

Manchester United got have gained a good momentum in the league. The reason, as for me, was the coach's complete understanding of the players. The Norwegian is not shy about leaving Paul Pogba in reserve, who only corrupts the team's play. At the same time, I still do not understand the role of Donnie van de Beek in the team, given the incredible progress of Scott McTominay.

If Solskjaer manages to unload the squad in the winter transfer window in the near future selling unnecessary players while strengthening the defensive line, he will be able to achieve balance. At the moment, there is no balance in the Manchester United game. I am sure that in the absence of personnel changes, the team's results will go downward in a sinusoidal manner, if the coach does not take action and let everything go by chance.
