Solskjaer finally reveals why United excel in big games and lose the small games

Manchester United boss, Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed his side excel under pressure because they don’t like to be criticised.

United won at Everton 3-1 on Saturday with a fine performance, after a disappointing defeat to Istanul Basaksehir.

Prior to the match, a number of United players were lambasted for the way they represented the club, and Solskjaer believes it could have played a role in the way they showed out at Everton in Saturday’s early kick off.

Speaking after the match, the Norwegian said about his side, “We want more consistency. We want to kick on and go on a run and climb the table and qualify in the Champions League.

“No one likes to be criticised. I don’t think my players like to be criticised so of course they’re going to come out and show what they’re about.

“My job is to make sure that guard is up every time and don’t drop that guard, don’t go into any game with ‘this game is going to be easy’. We can’t just outplay teams, we have to outfight and outrun teams as well.

“Today was an exceptional performance for a long time after a difficult week for the boys.”

Solskjaer was under some pressure himself, following the poor results recorded by his side lately, so he would have been delighted with the win.
