Manchester City looks unstoppable, they have won 18 matches in a row in all competitions, they are grabbing for the title in the Premier League, they are ten steps ahead of the city rival and Leicester, but the team from Old Trafford doesn't give up.
Nor is it the manner of a great club like Manchester United. Until a few rounds ago, it seemed that he could challenge the leader, now the question is whether he can catch up, however, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer assures that the championship race is not finished.
He believes that Red Devils have something to hope for in the remaining 13 rounds. "Until it's over, I won't say it is," the Norwegian replies a bit philosophically when asked if the English champion is already known after the frightening series of Pep Guardiola's team.
City did move forward, but challenges in the Champions League await them.
Solskjaer is believing in his team
At the same time, United believes that they could return to the game on March 7, with a possible victory at the Etihad.
"We have seen in the past examples of many teams that stayed in the fight, continued to work, devoting only to themselves." "Something could happen. It's not that we think about it, first of all, we take care of how to improve our game.
That is the only way we can control it. There is still a lot to play, and there is still a lot to fix when it comes to us. " Fans are hoping for even more. They find the reason in the fact that at this stage of the season, the Red Devils scored 53 goals, which is the most efficient performance since the 2012/13 competition when the last championship race ended at Old Trafford (60).
For a start, United will have to continue to score goals but stops conceding them. That is exactly what makes the difference. Pep Guardiola's team learned to win with 1: 0. Solskjaer's team is vulnerable (five goals conceded in the last three league matches).
"It is important that we maintain good momentum. We had a few mistakes against West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United, where I could explain until tomorrow why we didn't win the points we deserved, but I don't want to do that."
"It is important to me that the guys are focused, that they recover quickly in the physical and mental sense, it is not easy to play a Europa League match on Thursday night, and win Newcastle on Sunday. Maybe that's why we lacked a little energy in the first 45 minutes ", Solskjaer added.
