Solskjaer wants better results at home games.

Manchester United struggle to win at Old Trafford which is currently empty.

Before the match against Leicester City,

Manchester United

was the only team in the league which had a record 100% away games victory. However, they couldn’t beat Leicester City and they could only take one point from the Foxes. Despite good form away from home, they have not got good results at the home.

They were beaten 3-1 at Old Trafford against Crystal Palace, 6-1 against Spurs, and 1-0 against Arsenal.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

urges his players to do better in the Theatre of Dreams.

“I think the last game we played at Old Trafford was a very positive one," Solskjaer told MUTV. "We have to build on that performance and the way we attacked and the way we went about the game. We’ve been doing well away from home, but now there’s no travel and more time to recover between the games and it’s fresh this morning [Monday] so we should be ready.”

The Red Devils manager added on the absence of supporters in stadiums being more conducive to strong displays on the road: “We certainly know how much they mean to us at Old Trafford. I think we can see that with the results – it swings more to away wins than home wins and that [no fans] is a massive factor.

"Being at home and having your own fans who know what we’re trying to do and them giving the players support and encouragement, that’s been one of the biggest things.

"All my team-mates and even players coming from abroad would always talk about how loyal all our fans have always been. So we can’t wait to get them back and we’ll do what we can to get points before they’re in.”
