Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has urged Manchester United’s players to ‘stick together’ after their recent run of poor results.
Wednesday night’s 2-0 defeat at Old Trafford in the Manchester derby followed Sunday’s 4-0 thrashing at Everton, meaning United have now lost seven of their past nine fixtures in all competitions and face a difficult task to secure Champions League football for next season.
United face top four rivals Chelsea in a huge clash this weekend, and boss Solskjaer has urged his players to ‘stick together’ as they bid to come through a difficult period.
“You could see on Wednesday night there’s a team that wants to play and be there for each other,” Solskjaer told his pre-match press conference.
“We weren’t doing our jobs at Everton and it’s a boy who was hurt, Rashy’s really hurt by losing the derby, we all are.
“The eye opener was the Everton one and the last 10 days have been hard for everyone and you might come out emotional.
“For this club to be successful we have to stick together 24/7.”
