Solskjaer had won 14 of his first 19 games in caretaker charge at United but since being appointed as full-time manager last month, he’s picked up just two wins with the other four results all defeats.

Former England defender Danny Mills told Sky Sports News United should have waited longer before appointing Solskjaer, but the Norwegian is convinced he can take the club forward.
Asked whether he is the right manager for the job, Solskjaer said: “I would like to say yes, but it’s not down to me to say that.
“I’m confident in my team and myself and that I’ll be ready to take this challenge on. I know it’s a big challenge and I come in here saying I’m going to enjoy every single second of this.
“I don’t like losing but it’s a great challenge and when you go through bad results you’ve still got to be confident enough to say this is the way we’re going to do it and we’re planning ahead.”
