Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Manchester United are ‘getting better’ at ‘finding different solutions’ to win games following the club’s impressive recent form.
United are unbeaten in their past eight Premier League fixtures and have won six times during that run, with the Red Devils currently five points adrift of league leaders Liverpool with a game in hand.
After an indifferent start to the campaign Solskjaer’s side have hit form over the festive period, including a 6-2 thrashing of Leeds in their last home fixture to raise cautious optimism in some sections over a potential a title challenge.
Manchester United failed to win in their opening four league fixtures at home but are now unbeaten in their past four at Old Trafford, and Solskjaer believes his side now have the confidence to attack visiting sides ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Wolves.
“Yeah of course,” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference. “When the last game you played at Old Trafford gave you six goals then I’m sure the boys will look forward to it.
“It gave us confidence that performance and it also gave us a little gauge on how fit we are, that we could match them fitness-wise.
“We know we have loads of games in a short space of time, but Wolverhampton have got an even shorter turnaround this time, but they didn’t have a midweek game [last week].”
United will face familiar opposition tomorrow evening having met Wolves on seven occasions in league and cup over the past two years, and Solskjaer admits his side are anticipating a difficult test having won just one of those recent clashes – a 1-0 success in the FA Cup in January.
“Well, we’ve had so many tight games against them,” he added. “We are improving definitely, we’re getting better and better at finding different solutions in different games. But we know that Wolverhampton have got quality as well and they will give us problems if we’re too open. We’ve got a plan together.”
