Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he’s confident that Manchester United’s away form will improve despite their winless run on the road so far.

The Red Devils have won two of their five Premier League games so far, beating Chelsea FC 4-0 and Leicester City 1-0 – both at Old Trafford.

Manchester United lost 2-1 to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford in their third league fixture sandwiched in-between 1-1 stalemates with Southampton and Wolves.

Solskjaer’s men have already lost ground on Premier League leaders Liverpool FC after squandering seven points in five games.

Manchester United will make the trip to West Ham in the London capital on Sunday afternoon looking to win for the first time on the road this season.

Speaking at his pre-match media conference on Friday ahead of Manchester United’s clash against West Ham at the London Olympic Stadium, Solskjaer said:

“Why should we as coaches be concerned [about the away form]? We are looking forward to things. We are looking for solutions.

“No, I am never concerned about anything really. I don’t walk around and worry about things, not at all.

“I am looking at what we can do to improve. I have never been a worrier.

“I think we should have won at Southampton, we should have won at Wolverhampton. Both of them should have been wins.

“[Wherever you play], it is still the same size green pitch with white lines. Sometimes you have to block out the mental part and play the game as you would do in the park.”

Manchester United signed Swansea City winger Daniel James, Crystal Palace full-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Leicester City defender Harry Maguire in the summer transfer window.

The Red Devils finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League spot.

Manchester United haven’t won the Premier League title since 2013 when Sir Alex Ferguson was still in charge.

The Red Devils have got their hands on the FA Cup, the League Cup and the Europa League since Ferguson’s retirement.
