Solskjaer: Manchester United need to attack teams

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that his Manchester United team need to play to their strengths by attacking their opponents.

Solskjaer has got off to the perfect start to life in the Manchester United dugout, winning all five games in charge so far, with his side scoring 16 goals and conceding just three.

So far, the Norwegian has faced Cardiff, Huddersfield, Bournemouth, Newcastle and Reading, releasing the shackles of the Jose Mourinho era to play a free-flowing brand of football.

However, despite the former Red Devils striker getting ready to face the toughest test of his time in charge against Spurs at Wembley on Sunday, he is insisting his side will continue to play their attacking style.

“They are one of the best in the league so we have to be aware of their strengths. But we need to attack teams, that is our strength – going forward, attacking. We have to,” Solskjaer said in his pre-match press conference.

“We are not going to get as many chances to attack against these as we had before so when we have the ball we have to be ready to play well with it and we have to use the whole pitch because Wembley is a decent size pitch as well.”

A win for Manchester United will see them move level on points with Arsenal in fifth after they lost to West Ham on Saturday.
