Ole Gunnar Solskjaer issues Man United rallying cry ahead of Liverpool FC clash
Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says their next game against Liverpool FC is "perfect"
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United’s clash against Liverpool FC is “perfect” following Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at Newcastle.
The Red Devils succumbed to a 1-0 loss to Newcastle United at St James’ Park on Sunday evening to continue their poor start to the season.
Manchester United extended their winless run on the road in all competitions following Matty Longstaff’s winner for Newcastle.
Solskjaer’s men are in 12th place in the Premier League table after having collected nine points from their opening eight games.
Manchester United are 15 points behind Premier League leaders Liverpool FC, five points adrift of fourth-placed Leicester City and a mere two points above the relegation zone.
Solskjaer’s side will have the international break to reflect on their problems ahead of the visit of Liverpool FC at Old Trafford on Sunday 20 October.
The Manchester United boss believes Liverpool FC is the perfect fixture to help get the Red Devils back on track after a tough start to the Premier League campaign.
“That’s a perfect game for us,” Solskjaer is quoted as saying by Metro.
“The international break is also at the perfect time because their heads need a bit of airing.
“It doesn’t help having a meeting tomorrow.
“They will go away with their national teams, meet their team-mates and come back fresh.
“We have had a good time together, we have prepared since the first day of pre-season, we have stuck to the same principles.
“We have not got the result today but we have to keep carrying on.”
Manchester United were 4-0 winners against Chelsea FC in their first game of the Premier League campaign.
However, the Red Devils haven’t been able to build on that rousing victory at the start of their season.
Manchester United finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last term.
