Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits his side is far off the title with a draw against Crystal Palace, leaving leaders Manchester City 14 points clear.
Manchester United has struggled at home but maintains a good record in away as they have gone 21 games unbeaten. Although United was well off the pace against Palace, the draw saw them trail Liverpool 21 and Arsenal 27.
The lack of goals concerns Solskjaer after last night’s performance. Also, former captain, Gary Neville was concerned claims the game was ‘boring’.
“It’s not good as you know if you want to move up the table, you need to win,” Solskjaer said.
“You have to earn the right, you have to win tackles, you have to fight you have to play passes better as we kept giving the ball away,” the Norwegian added.
“We go into every game thinking we need to win and we want to win. We know we’re in a fight to be in the top four so every game is important,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Paul Scholes has urged Jack Grealish to leave Aston Villa to prove his talent. Manchester United is reportedly reigniting Grealish’s interest and Scholes believes it time to seek a new challenge.
“Don’t get me wrong, I love the player, but if he was doing this at Man United, Liverpool, City, one of the top clubs, then he’d be up there, he’d possibly be top three,” the former United midfielder said.
“There is no pressure on Villa. If he is at a top club then he needs to win every week,” he added.
“Jack Grealish is probably the same as Paulo Di Canio. It is all about him at Aston Villa. He needs to get out now to a club that needs to win every week, there is pressure to deliver trophies,” he urges.
Scholes had a successful football career at United making 499 appearances, scored 107 goals and 55 assists. He won 4 Player of the Month Awards and 11 premier league titles before he retired. The former midfielder scored a screamer against Barcelona in the 2008 semi-finals becoming United fan favorite.
