Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes that today’s match against West Brom almost represents the start of the season for Manchester United, as a four-month period without the distractions of international football gets underway. United return from the November internationals still awaiting their first Premier League win at Old Trafford this season, having suffered defeats to Crystal Palace, Tottenham and Arsenal at home. That poor form has left United sat in the bottom half of the standings, ramping up the pressure on Solskjaer and his squad ahead of a crucial run of fixtures.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said “Yeah, I would like to say so. Now we’ve got a chance to create momentum and the players’ focus is on the club and the roles and responsibilities here. Of course, it’s fantastic for them to go away and play with the national teams but now there is a different mentality. It almost feels like the season is going to start now because we’ve got time together.”
