Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned Manchester United they must not go years without winning the Premier League title like Liverpool.
United have not won the league since Sir Alex Ferguson left the club in 2013, coming closest under Jose Mourinho last season as they finished a distant second behind Manchester City. United host Liverpool on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League with kick-off at 2.05pm, and Solskjaer anticipates the 29-year wait for the title will be weighing heavy on their minds. United caretaker boss Solskjaer said: “Of course they do feel that pressure. I think all the supporters do and players probably do as well.
“But then we have not won it for a few years and so we want to get back to that. We have to make sure that we don’t end up being happy being among the top four. “If you aim too low and reach your target, then that’s more dangerous than aiming too high and missing them. “It is difficult to win the league here. It is probably the toughest league to win and when you look at it, there are only five or six teams that have won the Premier League. Leicester did it – which was a miracle – before that Blackburn did it, but then there was a few big clubs that have won it.”
