Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his young squad is “improving and evolving” in response to their indifferent start to the season. United have won once in their last five Premier League matches and needed penalties to beat League One Rochdale in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday.
“I never said it was going to be easy this season,” said the United manager. “There are going to be ups and downs. When we lose a game we have to trust ourselves and what we’re doing.”
Solskjaer’s side, who were beaten 2-0 by West Ham last weekend, host Arsenal at Old Trafford on Monday night. “The culture is there, there are no issues with attitude, work-rate or desire,” he added.
“You can see against Astana and Rochdale they want to impress and do well, and maybe they rush their finishing at times.”
