Solskjaer gives verdict on Man Utd’s form after ‘brutal’ 6-1 loss to Tottenham

Manchester United manager, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer, has hailed the manner Manchester United have turned things around after the 6-1 loss to Tottenham earlier this month.

The Red Devils suffered what remains the joint-worse defeat ever at the hands of the visiting Spurs at Old Trafford before the international break, going down 4-1 at halftime.

But since then, Solskjaer’s side have gone on to win games against Newcastle, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig, while drawing against Chelsea, and Solskjaer is happy with the improvement.

Speaking recently ahead of his side’s meeting with Arsenal this weekend, the Norwegian said: “I think any result as brutal as a 6-1 would have to get a response and, of course, it has been dealt with internally.

“We’ve tweaked a couple of things. We’ve got players fit and I think the manner of defeat wasn’t something that we should ever have to be confronted with again.

“Then again, things happen in football these days but the response has been fantastic. That’s what I’m concerned about because we wanted to finish that off as soon as we could and just move forward.”

United host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon, and will have an opportunity to extend our unbeaten run to five matches across all competitions since that humbling loss to Spurs.
