Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes his players need to relish the pressure they are under after a poor run of form.

The weeks leading up to the international break saw Man United suffer heavy defeats to Leicester, Liverpool, and Man City, with the defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s side in particular piling the pressure on the manager and players.

United are back in action against Watford on Saturday, before facing Chelsea and Arsenal in their next two league matches, and Solskjaer does not want his time hiding away from the current situation.

“We know the poor run of form puts ourselves under pressure but that pressure should be a joy,” he said.

“It should be something that makes us a better team and makes every player perform at their best level.”

Speculation continues on whether United are considering replacing Solskjaer, with Brendan Rodgers distancing himself from the job when questioned on it.

Solskjaer was asked whether he feels secure in his job at the moment, and he was adamant that the club is fully united despite the recent turmoil.

“Yeah. The players, the staff, myself and the club, we are all working towards one goal and that’s for this team to improve and get better results,” Solskjaer said.

“The fans are still supporting the team and the club. They’ve been through this period and backed this time through the rebuild.

“You know when you lose a game you’re always disappointed and under pressure. We’ve communicated well and openly and honestly.

“There’s one game now that matters but also there’s what goes on after that. We’re all refreshed, this week has been really good in training and we’re ready for tomorrow.”
