Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes they have not ‘cracked it’ yet and they should work harder.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

believes although they are now second in the

Premier League

table and are the closest challengers to defending champions Liverpool, they have not ‘cracked it’ yet.

The Red Devils

are now only three points behind Liverpool with one game in hand.

Manchester United are close to winning the title and it would be their first since 2013, however, they must work hard if they intend to win it.

“You know, when you are getting closer, that gives you a boost and it gives you extra focus,” Solskjaer said.

“The good thing about this group is that some of them have won before so they are not going to get too far ahead of themselves. We know that the only way to do it is to take one game at a time.

“I know that is quite a boring statement, but that is the good thing about this group - they are not going to think we have cracked it because in any game in this league, you have got to be at it and that's why we have a big, strong squad.”

Although the Red Devils had a difficult start to the season, Solskjaer turned things around and believes there is even more to come.

“Well we had a difficult start to the season with the late arrival of some players and we missed the pre-season,” Solskjaer added.

“And I think we have shown after the second international break, the one in October, that we have regrouped, come together, we are getting fitter, stronger, the squad is getting better and we just have to take one game at a time, move up the table and improve as a team.

“But we have finished the year strong. I think we have done well since the beginning of February, or end of January, and we have proven to ourselves that we can be consistent over a longer period.”
