Manchester United (MU) may have recorded the worst start in the Premier League in 31 years. But, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer does not care about the position of the Red Devils who until now continue to be thrown from the top four in the table standings.

MU is not able to take advantage of the host advantage against Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday (1/12). Although the chance to reverse the situation after being left behind 0-1, the host must be satisfied to share the results 2-2.

So far they have only recorded four wins, six draws, and four defeats. That was the worst record since 1988/1989 in the same period.

At that time, Manchester United could only occupy position 11 and left behind 25 points from Arsenal who came out as champions. A similar story can be repeated. They are currently 22 points adrift of Liverpool who topped the standings.

However, Solskjaer claimed he had never thought about the position of his fleet in the table. According to him, where MU is not too important. The priority is how to improve performance in the field. “I would not sit here and discuss we should be in the fifth position if I could score one more goal. So, at this point, the position in the table is not our biggest concern. Because the competition is very tight, “said Solskjaer, reported by Skyport.

Solskjaer stated that what MU had to do now was how to display the desired performance. The hope is that the Red Devils can achieve good results when facing the next four games that are classified as heavy.

Furthermore, MU will host Tottenham Hotspur (5/12) and visited Manchester City (8/12) in the Premier League. Then welcomed AZ Alkmaar (12/13) in the Europa League and Everton (12/15) in the domestic competition.

“All I can say so far is that we were able to lead many matches, but in the end, we couldn’t win. Six or seven times we had a 1-0, 2-1 or 3-2 lead like last week (3-3 draw against Sheffield United). We have to be better to win matches like that, “said Solskjaer.
