Solskjaer delighted with 'fantastic' Manchester United response to 'brutal' Tottenham 6-1 defeat

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is happy with the way Manchester United have bounced back from the 6-1 hammering they suffered at home to Tottenham at the start of October.

Solskjaer's team are looking to maintain their positive run when they host Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday and he believes they are in good shape.

"I think any result as brutal as a 6-1 would have to get a response and, of course, it has been dealt with internally," he told reporters on Friday. "We’ve tweaked a couple of things, got players fit and I think the manner of the defeat wasn’t something we should ever have to be confronted with again.

"Then again things happen in football these days and the response has been fantastic, and that’s what I’m concerned about, because we wanted to finish that off as soon as we could and move forward."

He continued: "We keep on working, want to develop, we want to improve.It’s not up to me to say how far we’ve come, but I’ve been very pleased with the response after what we did early on in the season.

"We knew we had to hang in early on and try to get points on the board because we were far behind but now we feel fit and strong and competitive in every game."

United are 15th in the Premier League and are top of their Champions League group after two matches. Despite their inconsistent start, the Norwegian coach believes his squad has enough depth to challenge for silverware this term.
