"There will be changes in position" - Solskjaer

Sun 13 December 2020 | 23:40

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expect his team to continue over the next weeks and struggle to the top of the Premier League table over the busy Christmas period.

Not losing to Manchester City means

United

 

stand five points before league leaders Tottenham and have played a game less despite a delayed start.

The festive day, brings lots of matches with

United

 

going to Sheffield United on Thursday ahead of hosting Leeds at Old Trafford next weekend and the coach expects changes.

When the Man Utd manager was asked about the title race, he said:

“I think Christmas time with the amount of games in a short space of time and then not even the amount of games, there will be changes in positions,” 

“We have a game less but it’s a big moment in the season, this time around Christmas, then get to the new year, then you have a break with the FA Cup, maybe then we will have a clearer view of how it will look for us now that we have recovered from the setback of the Leipzig game.

"Of course we wanted three points against City but we couldn’t - but now we are looking for the Sheffield United and Leeds United games.”

If

United

want to get to the top place, they need to score at home.

They’ve netted only three league goals at Old Trafford this season and two of that have made it from the penalty spot.

“If you compare our goal tally from last season to now we are ahead way with the amount of games that we have played and the amount of goals we have scored whether that is home or away it doesn't really matter,”

Solskjaer

added.

“I think teams, and bigger teams set the stall out to defend against us and be happy with a draw. That is of course a challenge for us but I think we have proven in many games that we do create chances.

"I think we have scored and created a lot of chances at certain moments and it’s more varied in the way we score.”
