Olè Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted it was hard to look at the Premier League table at the start of the season when Manchester United were struggling.
United lost a few of our games earlier in the season, including games against Crystal Palace and Tottenham Hotspur.
The poor run ensured the Red Devils were left languishing outside the top 6 of the league before we turned things around.
Reflecting on the journey recently, ahead of his sides game against Burnley, the Norwegian lamented the poor start, and admitted it made him and the players worry.
He said: “With the results we got in the beginning, it made it more difficult for the players and easier for people to criticise us, looking at the table, maybe worrying a little bit.
“We had a difficult start against Palace and Tottenham and it made it harder for us to look at the table. Even if you don’t look at it, people are always talking about your position. Now it’s a different challenge. It’s Burnley away and we’re in this position.”
United can go top of the league with a win against Burnley, who may be without 9 of their first team players tonight, and Solskjaer has been handed a huge boost for the game, with the injured Eric Bailly training with the rest of the team on Monday.
