Solskjaer has 'found a way to play against' LFC
It's quite sad, listening to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The man clearly thinks his long-term future is at Old Trafford. As a Liverpool fan, you can only hope he's right.
So it's no surprise to hear him talking (a lot) ahead of the big match on Sunday already. He still thinks we live in the 90's, when Alex Ferguson's mind-games were often what decided a big match before it kicked off.
Unfortunately for Solskjaer, Ferguson he is not. So to hear him gleefully tell the press today that he's found a way to play against us that gets them points is actually quite laughable. He said: "Of course it is hard, but I’ve had Liverpool here twice, we’ve drawn both, “Solskjaer said after the FA Cup victory over Wolves on Wednesday night.
"Of course you want to win them games but I think we’ve found a nice way of playing against them and we’ve deserved the points in both of them."
If finding a way to play against us involves conceding over 60% possession and letting us dominate, whilst hoping to catch us on the break, then yes, he's right. As to whether those points were necessarily deserved? Well, that's another matter.
Two draws in his only two games against us are a huge scalp for the Man Utd manager, who has had little to shout about since taking over the biggest job he'll ever have.
But his words are likely to only make our own team double-down ahead of the match on Sunday as our assault on the top place in English football goes on.
