Parker believes that Manchester United need to attract better players in order to compete with rivals.

player Paul Parker believes that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is advancing at United with luck and needs to sign a right-back such as Kieran Trippier or Max Aarons to succeed.

The Red Devils have had some ups and downs this season and are currently the closest team to the top of the table,

Liverpool

. They have not won the Premier League in 8 years, and the fans are eager to succeed with this team. Now Parker claims that luck has helped Manchester a lot during this period and that they must have the right players to fight rivals.

He told Eurosport:

“There are seven or eight teams involved in the title race.

“It’s great because there’s been nothing like this since the early days of the Premier League, when it was really up for grabs. It’s like the old football leagues.

“The inconsistency and struggles of the campaign have allowed us to identify the mentally strong teams, and it has exposed those who are mentally weak.

“However, that doesn’t mean that United are necessarily psychologically resilient. They are failing to do their jobs properly, despite their comebacks.

“When you’re away from home, when there’s a crowd, you have to make sure that the home fans don’t get a lift. You don’t want the opposition to get the first free kick or corner, let alone the first goal. That should be the same task even without fans.

“Ole Gunnar Solskjaer must know that his time is running out in these situations. When they went behind against Leipzig, it was against a better team who could control the situation. And when they did go in front against Leicester City, one of the better sides in the league, they lost their lead - twice.”
