Manchester United manager, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has refused to rule out his side’s chances of challenging for the Premier League title this season, despite trailing the leaders, Everton with six points.
United have not lost a match in four games now, winning three of them and drawing against Chelsea last weekend, and Solskjaer believes United have a genuine chance of competing with Liverpool and Manchester City, who were far better than everyone else in the last two seasons.
He however insisted consistency was important if that’s to happen, while maintaining the need to take things one at a time.
Solskjaer said: “I think football has developed and so many clubs have developed strength in depth and the ability to challenge for the trophies.
“Even though last two seasons you had two teams running away with it, I think this season a lot of us just underneath them would hope to put up a challenge, back then it was us or Arsenal, and then Chelsea came through.
“Now it’s more exciting for me and the fans that it’s not one of these two. Anything can happen this season with what’s happening around the world and we’re just taking one game at a time.”
Solskjaer does have a point, although we have to admit the season is too far from over for us to start drawing conclusions.
We just need to keep going; win our matches, and hope for the best.
