Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer asked Man Utd’s students to forget the loss to Sheffield, and to work hard for the Arsenal great war in the Premier League this weekend.
“We need to get rid of the sadness and move forward again,” Solskjaer stressed after losing to Sheffield United 1-2. “Next Saturday, when we meet Arsenal, we need to play well. They are in good shape, and they won when they met us. We have to push ourselves.”
In the first leg of the Premier League, Man Utd lost 0-1 to Arsenal at home. The reunion in the 20th round of Saturday 30/1 promises to be a challenge for the “Red Devils”, because Arsenal are on a winning streak of five and one draw.
Winning at Man Utd is the second time Sheffield United have won all three points in the Premier League this season. Meanwhile, this is the first defeat of “Red Devils” after 13 wins and draws. But Solskjaer just sees this as a stumble. “Of course we were disappointed. However, we have also seen a lot of unusual results this season and during that period we have been playing very well. I don’t have time for in-depth analysis,” he said. We need to get over it and move on. “
Anthony Martial was one of Man Utd’s most disappointing players in the defeat to Sheffield United. But Solskjaer refused to criticize the student: “I think the whole team may have to receive criticism for tonight’s performance, including me. We deserve it. However, in my opinion, Martial is training very hard. Just and I have no doubt he will play well. “
After losing to Sheffield United, Man Utd is still second in the Premier League with 40 points. They are one point behind and play more than one game than Man City.
