Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given his reaction to a stat that compares his record in his first 29 Premier League matches in charge of Manchester United to Jurgen Klopp’s at Liverpool.
However, Solskjaer‘s brilliant record in temporary charge at United – before getting the job on a permanent basis – means his record in his first 29 Premier League games is better than Klopp‘s first 29 in charge at Liverpool.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s first 29 #PL games as Man Utd manager:
✅ 14 wins
🤝 7 draws
❌ 8 losses
Jurgen Klopp’s first 29 #PL games as Liverpool manager:

The value of time.

Speaking about the statistic, Solskjaer said: “I don’t hold on to stats like this. I’m just working as planned, business as usual, we are trying to improve the team and we are trying to work toward something.
“We are heading somewhere, we feel, but we need results and we need and expect the players to come out and prove why they’re at Man United.”
The Red Devils host their arch-rivals on Sunday with Solskjaer’s men hoping to inflict Liverpool’s first defeat of the season.
