Solskjaer says Manchester United need to ‘sort out’ their dreadful away form

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United need to ‘sort out’ their dreadful away record as the club look to overcome a difficult start to the season.

Man United travel to face Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday night, with the club currently on an 11-game winless run away from home.

Their torrid away form is their worst run since they went 11 fixtures without victory three decades ago, with the club’s last win away from Old Trafford being that memorable Champions League turnaround against Paris Saint-Germain at the Parc-des-Princes back in March.

Solskjaer admits he has been left confused by his side’s poor record, but is confident his side can end their winless record ahead of a succession of away fixtures.

“It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves as well,” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference.

“Because after I came in we won nine on the bounce and since then we haven’t won any.

“So, it’s an issue we have to deal with, sort out as soon as possible.

“We’ve got four games away now on the trot, so hopefully those statistics will turn.”
