Man Utd must not end up like Liverpool – Solskjaer

Manchester United must avoid “being happy” finishing in the top four and not win the Premier League title for years like Liverpool, according to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Reds have not won a league title since 1990 but they have given themselves a brilliant chance this season.

With 12 matches left of the season, they are level on points with leaders Manchester City and have a game in hand.

Meanwhile, United, who face Jurgen Klopp’s side on Sunday, have not won a title since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013 and Solskjaer wants to avoid going much longer without winning the league.

“Of course they do feel that pressure,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports. “I think all the supporters do and players probably do as well.

“But then we have not won it for a few years and so we want to get back to that. We have to make sure that we don’t end up being happy being among the top four.

“If you aim too low and reach your target, then that’s more dangerous than aiming too high and missing them.

“It is difficult to win the league here. It is probably the toughest league to win and when you look at it, there are only five or six teams that have won the Premier League.

“Leicester did it – which was a miracle – before that Blackburn did it, but then there was a few big clubs that have won it.

Solskjaer added: “I have loads of Liverpool fans back home and every year is going to be their year. It has got to October and it’s: ‘OK, next year.’

“Now they are in the race so for them, it is going to be an exciting finish to the league. That is none of our concern. We just have to concentrate on ourselves.”
