Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solksjaer has insisted that his side can still win the Premier League this season despite enduring an inconsistent start to the campaign.
United will face their city rivals in Old Trafford on Saturday – just days after they were ousted from the UEFA Champions League by RB Leipzig in a disappointing 3-2 defeat.
Although, United have won their last four league games, having come from behind in three of those victories and Solskjaer feels his team are gradually taking shape as title contenders.
“At Manchester United, you should always aim to win trophies,” Solskjaer said.
“Of course, with the last three seasons, as they have been, there’s been two teams far ahead of the rest of the pack.
“I got belief during the season, or since the turn of the new year, that this team is improving and that we can put up a challenge.
“Of course we need to improve on last season but I don’t think any team will run away with it.
“I go into every single game wanting to win, so maybe that’s the answer to your question. If you win every game you end up with a trophy.”
