Solskjaer targets Europa success as tonic for struggling Man United

Michael Owen predicts Man United v Partizan Belgrade

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has kept his cards close to his chest regarding potential January signings at the club, insisting that it is always easier to do deals in the summer.

United are 10th in the Premier League, 10 points off the Champions League qualification places and 18 adrift of leaders Liverpool.

"You're disappointed when you lose a game and of course we were on half a run", Solskjaer said on Wednesday.

But Solskjaer and his coaching staff believe that United now need an attacking right-sided midfielder to complement Wan-Bissaka's defensive strengths and boost the team's creativity and goal threat from that side of the pitch.

When asked about possible arrivals in the winter window, he told reporters: "The priority now is to get the players fit and get to the next round [of the Europa League]".

"Saturday (against Bournemouth) was disappointing and now we have a chance to get two wins before the (international) break. They have to keep working hard in training, keep listening and keep learning to people giving them the right advice to improve themselves".

"It's just turned November, you're not going to talk about the end league table in November".

Manchester United are now at the top of their Europa League group after having taken seven points from a possible nine in their opening three games so far.

"This team is improving and the longer time we get together we'll improve even more".

"It was a quick turnaround, we couldn't get the goal that we felt we deserved early on".

"He got a knock against Chelsea and he didn't come through the game against Bournemouth without a reaction so he will be out tomorrow". "We always look at the long term look at players", he said.

All of which is important for United, given Solskjaer admitted that they may go without signing any new players in January.

"He's taken strides, it's the first season he's been playing regularly, which is massive for a young kid to play week in and week out, and we've seen an improvement in him".
