Having crashed out of Champions League group stages, Manchester United have put in a stellar performance in Premier League to draw the Manchester derby and win two consecutive matches against Sheffield United, Leeds United. The Red Devils got one step closer to winning a silverware under Solskjaer after defeating Everton 2-0.
The recent run of results have propelled Manchester United to third position in the table, five points behind leaders Liverpool, with a game in hand. Former Manchester United defender Gary Neville has urged Solskjaer to be careful with his January transfer plans and not to delve into panic buys after failing to sign some primary targets over summer.
According to Metro, Gary Neville said “They’re a confusing bunch because three or four weeks ago, two weeks ago eve, you were looking at this Manchester United team and thinking it’s going to be a tough old season.”
“Going out of Europe, the performance in the first half against West Ham was awful. But after beating Everton, the glass looks half full. The squad has been used, the performance against Leeds, they’re scoring goals, the depth of the squad looks good. Leicester is another big game, if they go there and win they will really be gathering confidence.”
“From three weeks ago, there was a point I thought this would be a real challenge. But I think right now the fans will be happy because the players have a lot of quality. If they can get into a rhythm and start to produce performances over 90 minutes consistently, that bunch of players, there’s some big characters and big talents in there. It’s getting better and they are stronger and they have match-winners“.
