Glory Glory Man Utd!



Manchester United manager Olé Gunnar Solskjær and his players will be traveling to the West Midlands to take on Sam Allardyce’s West Bromwich Albion on the back of a narrow 1-0 win over West Ham in their FA Cup game at Old Trafford. The Red Devils welcomed David Moyes’ men to their home turf but needed a Scott McTominay strike during extra-time to emerge winners on the night of the FA Cup action.

The game was dominated by United as they played a total of 17 shots and had a larger share of the ball possession (62%) while finding it hard to break down a resilient West Ham defense. It was McTominay’s seventh goal of the season as he continues to make a claim for a starting berth in the United starting lineup.

Solskjaer wants more than just fourth with Manchester United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that the club won’t be satisfied with a push for the top four next season. The Red Devils were far off from competing for the Premier League title last season as they finished sixth on the table, but Ole is aiming to make amends with a strong showing next term.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Solskjaer said that the top four remains the minimum objective and United should push further for potential silverware, given the reputation of the club, he told: “We’ve got to aim for further up than fourth, we’ve got to, that’s just being at Manchester United. I’d rather be an optimist and be wrong than a pessimist and be right. I can’t say that these players won’t be challenging for big trophies because they have the quality. They do have the chance and we just need that consistency. We need a good start and we need to keep working every single day and not get our eyes off the targets.”
