Solskjaer insists Man United aren’t the ‘finished article’ despite Chelsea thrashing

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes there is more to come from his Manchester United side, despite opening their Premier League campaign with a 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Marcus Rashford opened the scoring for Solskjaer’s side from the penalty spot, before Anthony Martial, Rashford’s second and debutant Daniel James’ late goal sealed a memorable win.

Solskjaer admits his side were fortunate to be leading at half-time before blowing Chelsea away in a ruthless second-half display, with the Manchester United manager admitting his side are ‘not anywhere near the finished article’ as he bids to continue improving.

“We know we’re not anywhere near the finished article,” Solskjaer told his post-match press conference.

“We are working on improving as a team and finding a style that suits us a team. We still need time but it is coming.

“Winning is a habit. We are lucky to go in 1-0 up but in the second half our nerves settled, our confidence grew.”
