What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Manchester United players in Christmas party address

United have been more free-flowing in attack with Solskjaer at the helm and the former striker signalled his intent to continue in the same vein against their next opponents. He's got the potential to get up there.

"We're not going to get as many chances to attack against (Spurs) as we've had before, so we've got to be ready for when we get hold of the ball and play well with it to make sure we use the whole pitch because Wembley is a decent-sized pitch as well".

He won the Golden Boot at last year's World Cup and this season is joint-top scorer alongside Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on 14 goals.

Solskjaer has won his first five games as United boss but faces his first real test when he lines up against Tottenham.

Gunners close in on Denis Suarez loan deal
Arsenal midfielder Ainsley Maitland-Niles says the club are finally travelling in the right direction under Unai Emery . Emery was non-committal when asked about his former player in his press conference on Thursday.


In other words: Solskjaer has fulfilled the functions of what you'd expect from a manager, encouraging a more open environment and style of football which best suits the players.

Perhaps the biggest beneficiary of United's change in management has been Paul Pogba, though, with the Frenchman beginning to show the type of form we knew he was capable of.

The days of United signing Spurs' best players also appear over.

United have a proud history of producing their own talent, having included at least one youth-team graduate in every first-team matchday squad since October 1937. That's our strength as well: going forward and attacking teams. "There were a couple of training sessions here (I watched) with the young kids, and Chongy (Tahith Chong) and Angel (Gomes) and him and Jesse, they played together in a certain way".

He added: "They feel so excited to be there and I think that's flowing from them on to the players".

Solskjaer, loaned to United by Norwegian club Molde for the rest of this season, reiterated that there have been no discussions with United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward over the permanent job despite his desire to take the hot seat. It's quick that all the people say when we need to operate in a different way it's to operate with money. You don't plan five or six months ahead and then suddenly, after two weeks, change that.

"He knows exactly what it takes at the club and what everyone needs and I think the way he works his coaching is really good".
