Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has responded to comments about the club’s ability to challenge the title after his recent form.
The legendary Norwegian oversaw such a crazy season that his own business was in effect shortly before, especially after a huge defeat by Tottenham and a fall from the Champions League.
Both things happened on separate occasions and prove the madness of the campaign as long as Solskjaer tries to get his team up the table.
If United win in the hand, they will be just two points from the top of the table in their fierce rival Liverpool.
The recent form has seen some fans get carried away and claim that the title challenge may be on the card, even if it fails.
Solskjær on the conversation with the challengers of the title: “Noise is heard around #mufc anyway. It is important for us to improve as a team, to lead it game by game – we have to. That’s the name of the game, it’s the only way you’re going to challenge anything at the end of the season anyway. ” #mulive [mu]

Solskjaer has to balance himself so as not to get carried away by the media, at the same time trying to put a marker on his players.
Winning the league may be unattainable, but in this unpredictable season, nothing is impossible, and the title challenge is what the fans originally set this year.
After qualifying for the Champions League last season, natural progress would be a challenge for the title, followed by winning the title next season.
At the beginning of the season, the fans adjusted their expectations, but now they have grown once again and Solskjaer and his associates have to manage that new pressure.
