Solskjaer explains reason for draw with West Brom, as he sends warning to Manchester City

Olé Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted the Premier League title race is not over, and his Manchester United side are still very much in contention for their first in seven years.

United could only cut the distance between them and City to seven points with their draw against West Brom, after they initially moved 8 clear.

But Solskjaer is confident there’s still plenty to play for, as the Red Devils prepare to face Pep Guardiola’s men in early March.

Speaking to Sky Sports after Sunday’s game, the Norwegian said, “We should play better but we gave ourselves a tough start.

“You have 90 minutes to make amends [after West Brom’s early goal] but we didn’t build that momentum until late in the first half.

“I said we shouldn’t be talked about [in the title race]. A compliment for the boys we got into position we are in now.

“We won’t let them [Manchester City] run away with it – we’re playing them soon. We’re not giving it away early – no we’re not.”

United will play City on March 6, but even if we win the game, we could still be several points behind, as they retain a game in hand.
