Manchester United avoided their worst start to a Premier League season as they defeated Everton 3-1. Solskjaer and his team were under intense scrutiny as defeats against Arsenal and Istanbul Basaksehir prompted fans and pundits questioning the manager’s future at the club.
Harry Maguire, the Manchester United captain, feels their performance at Goodison Park will give something for them to build on after the international break. The defender said “At this club one thing I’ve noticed in my time here – I’ve been here a year and a half – is we are the most talked-about club in the world. Why? Because we are the biggest club in the world. People don’t want us to do well. Why? Probably because of the success we’ve had in the past. We have to live up to that, we have to react to it and don’t let the negatives get into our bubble inside the training ground. Sometimes it is difficult for the lads
We reacted well to two poor results. We felt we were on the right track after Leipzig and we let ourselves down against Arsenal. It wasn’t good enough as a performance. In the week again we gave them a soft goal and found it too hard to create chances to come back. We knew this was an important game to get three points. We reacted well but it is only a start.“
