Manchester United are becoming consistent – Solskjaer

Under his leadership, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that Manchester United are becoming more consistent as they prepare for winning the Premier League.

Despite initially suffering their worst start to a league season since the David Moyes era, a run of three successive victories in the Premier League has lifted United up to ninth in the table and put them five points behind leaders Tottenham with a game in hand.

A 3-2 victory at Southampton last weekend set a new club record of eight straight away wins in the league, but a defeat to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday means United have won three of their eight matches at Old Trafford in all competitions this term.

Asked about his side’s inconsistency ahead of United’s trip to West Ham in the Premier League on Saturday, live on Sky Sports, Solskjaer said: “It depends on how many games you want to go back.

“We have played against some fantastic teams. If you go 30 or 40 games back, I think we’re one of the most consistent teams performance-wise in the Premier League.

“Of course, you’re disappointed when you lose a game. I thought we played really well on Wednesday and it’s fine margins at times that decide games.

“The performance against PSG was miles better than the West Brom match, but you win the game against West Brom and don’t get the three points against PSG.

“I think we’re getting less bad performances and getting more and more consistent. You can never control the result in the end, that’s decided by fine margins.”
