to talk about the Red Devils chances of taking the Premier League title. Though Solskjaer’s men were successful in earning a late win over


and minimizing the gap between them and the table leaders,


, he insisted on leaving the title talk for another time.

Still the Norwegian boss, admitting to having faith in his men, said:

"There's no title race after 15 games. You can lose the chance of being in a race in the first 10 games. But play another 15, get to 30, and then maybe we can start talking about a title race."

"But the belief is there. We go into every game thinking we can win against anyone anywhere. Away we've shown what we're capable of, we are improving at home as well and this result is massive for confidence and attitude."

Solskjaer added on

"He didn't play his best game, definitely. He's played better games but he's always in and around creating chances.”

"Maybe he made more for them than he did for us today! But he's got that knack of looking for that pass, and in the end it worked."

"As a club and as a group we've been really good at following the protocols,"

Solskjaer said.

"That's part of the job. I can't see the benefit in having a circuit break because when are we going to play the games?”

"We all know this year is so difficult, but if you stop more games I don't think that's going to make a big change – it might be a longer one. When do we finish the season?"
