Solskjaer outlines what Manchester United must do against Watford

Man United beaten again

Manchester United welcomed cross-town rivals Manchester City to Old Trafford on Saturday.

United were no doubt desperate to avoid a similar drubbing to the one they were recently subjected to at home by Liverpool.

And though the clash, in the end, only finished 2-0, United’s performance this weekend was arguably just as bad as it was against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds.

An Eric Bailly own goal and a Bernardo Silva strike saw Man City walk away with a comfortable win on the day, though the scoreline could and probably should have been much more emphatic.

Solskjaer on Watford

Following their defeat to City, it has been revealed that 21 per cent of Manchester United’s Premier League home losses have come under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s watch.

Despite such woes, though, news emerging on Sunday points towards the Norwegian remaining in his position for the time being.

Solskjaer will therefore be expected to be in charge for United’s next game, against Watford after the international break.

And now, the club’s boss has outlined what his side must do against the Hornets, urging the Red Devils to come out of the blocks at Vicarage Road ‘like a proper hurt animal’:

“Players are human beings and when you lose a game of football there’s no better remedy than winning a game, getting your confidence back. Hopefully, the ones who go away do well.

“For us, it’s all about Watford. We have to come out against Watford like a proper hurt animal and get back to what we know we can be. That’s the only way to approach this and attack the situation.

“The short answer is yes, it’s come at a good time for us now. As a group, we’ve had a difficult spell, we’ve come through it but this was a big step backward.”
