Ole Gunnar Solskjaer outlines five changes he’s made at Man United since Liverpool defeat

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer didn’t dwell on Manchester United’s horror result against Liverpool as he got straight to work on the training field.

Mohamed Salah’s hat-trick condemned the red Devils to a 5-0 defeat to pile more pressure on the Norwegian.

Reports suggest that Solskjaer is in the firing line, but he has been given more time to turn things around as Man Utd take on Tottenham this weekend.

And Solskjaer says the squad have put the result firmly behind him as he revealed he has tried to implement five specific changes in training since Sunday, addressing both the mental and physical side of the game.

He said: “We definitely need a reaction and it’s my job as well to put the players in the right frame of mind. I’m responsible for the reaction, the result, the performance.

“We’ve worked on the pitch, worked on everything that needs to be sorted for a footballer. It’s not just frame of mind, it’s the approach strategy, gameplan, tactics, technically.

“We’ve had a good week and I feel the boys are ready to give their best as they always do. The performance, nothing went to plan and that was nowhere near our best.”

It’s claimed United have lined up a replacement if Solskjaer does depart as Brendan Rodgers has now emerged as the reported frontrunner .

But the Old Trafford boss vows to keep fighting.

Solskjaer told reporters: “I’ve been through some very bad moments as a player here and when I’ve been a manager.

“I’ve dealt with setbacks, there have been two or three crises at least since I became manager here and one thing I can say is I’ll always give it a good shot and fight back.”

Solskjaer says his players have taken inspiration from Manchester United supporter Tyson Fury, who battled back from adversity to become a two-time heavyweight champion of the world.

He continued: “You see Tyson Fury when he gets knocked down a couple of times, it’s remarkable how calm and composed he is on the floor, counts to six, seven, eight and he gets up and goes again.

“We got up too early and tried to sort it. Minds have to be better but we’ve had to look at different things as well, the communication has to be direct.”
