Instant reaction as Manchester United draw 0-0 at Alkmaar

Solskjaer is confident the poor run is not due to any psychological block and that an away win is imminent, but the 1999 treble hero also knows United can not roll into town with the fear factor they once possessed.

For a team desperately lacking invention and power in the final third, Pogba simply needs to avoid any further injury for the rest of the season - which is not realistic, really - if United's current demise is to be even slightly checked.

"First of all, I think Paul Pogba, since the start of the season, has never been completely fit injury wise", Wenger told beIN Sports. "That's a penalty 100 times out of 100, you can not get that decision wrong in football", Solskjaer said, perhaps trying to deflect focus away from another lacklustre display.

"There is no point me complaining but there will come a point where these decisions will turn our way. We've hopefully got many players fresh for Sunday". Also, given the lack of quality and squad depth, the Norwegian's time at Old Trafford looks to be numbered day by day. There'll be headlines if I say it's this, that or the other. "We're working to improve and that's what we have to do".

Now, according to the Mirror, Man United are set to appoint a new physio after Solskjaer's fitness comments.

Aaron Finch retains the skipper's armband, with wicketkeeper Alex Carey and paceman Pat Cummins sharing vice-captain duties. However today's squad indicates that mindset has changed, with just over 12 months until the T20 World Cup on home soil.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer accepts Manchester United are not the force they once were, with the manager braced for more ups and downs as he waits for their younger players to "blossom".

Currently, Manchester United have as many as three attacking options in their team- Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial.

"I remember him referencing a post I made on pressing rates and his first game against Cardiff being the 2nd best performance in the PL last season." he said.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer declared himself "very pleased" as Manchester United stumbled to a 0-0 draw at AZ Alkmaar.
