Ole Gunnar Solskjaer press conference

Solskjaer: Manchester United ‘have not been clinical’ in front of goal

Ole Gunnar Solskajer says Manchester United ‘have not been clinical’ in front of goal in recent weeks.

Manchester United host West Ham this weekend in Saturday’s evening fixture, as they look to continue their push for a top-four finish and secure Champions League qualification.

Wednesday night’s 1-0 Champions League defeat to Barcelona means United have won just once in their past five fixtures, and manager Solskjaer admits his side must be more ruthless in front of goal to turn results around.

“You are never happy when you don’t win games,” Solskjaer told the media at his pre-match press conference.

“We have played well but we’ve not had the belief and quality in front of goal.

“We should have beaten Arsenal and Wolves with the chances we had. As a striker, I know how important that belief is. We have been practising putting the ball in the goal. Lately, we have not been clinical.”
