Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has rallied a cry to his players, calling them to show they want it more than Newcastle.
The Red Devil’s form has been notably a concern to ole Gunnar of late and he is hoping to bounce back against Newcastle tonight.
Solskjaer wants to see United prove their motivation and desire as they host Steve Bruce’s side to Old Trafford. United trails rival Manchester City by 10 points in the title race and they are hoping to exploit every advantage to cut the gap.
The former United Strike told the club’s website: “Every game in the Premier League is difficult. You’ve got to earn the right.
“You’ve got to do it by your quality but first of all the attitude.”
“Run more than them, want it more than them and we’ve got players who have got the quality, so hopefully we can take the chances,” he urged his players.
Despite United’s title chances seem slim; there is a realistic opportunity for silverware in both the Europa League and FA Cup.
He added, “Thursday night was perfect for us. We gave minutes to the ones that needed minutes, we got good confidence from the performance.”
“The forwards scored goals – Dan [James], Marcus [Rashford], Bruno [Fernandes] scored two goals. I think we’ve found a way of playing when the spaces are there for us,” he continued.
“I think we were good at finding the spaces. When they give you the space in behind, why not take it?”
Responding to the title challenge, he said, “Of course, a trophy is always what you’re aiming for. You want to win every single competition: FA Cup, Europa League, every game you play, the Premier League.”
“And that’s the ultimate challenge and a test for a team: to go all the way,” he concluded.
United has a number of injury concerns and Ole issues a rallying cry to his team. They will be without long-term absentee Phil Jones. Pogba, Cavani, Van De Beek, and Scott MC Tominay are the latest players joining the United injury list.
