Solskjaer explains reason for Manchester United’s slow start in games

Last weekend, Manchester United had to bounce back from a goal down to beat Tottenham Hotspur 3-1. This has been a recurring theme this season for Manchester United.

United have even picked up 28 points from losing positions – 12 more than any other side in the division.

Many have pointed to different factors as to why United keep conceding first or starting games poorly, but Solskjaer believes it’s down to the Europa League games on Thursdays, as his side has little time to recover for games.

“Sometimes we’ve been criticised for starting slow and having to come back from being 1-0 down,” the Norwegian manager told Sky Sports ahead of Sunday’s home fixture against Burnley this weekend.

“But at times there is a reason behind those stats, because we played on a Thursday night.

“Hopefully we fly out of the traps on Sunday, but sometimes it doesn’t work that way.”
