Man Utd are 9th but positions don't matter to Solskjaer

The Red Devils have only managed to win two of their last six games, while Manchester United have drawn 3-3 with Sheffield United and 2-2 with Aston Villa in their last two outings.

Manchester United under the helm of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has simply not looked the part of the former glory that the player-turned-gaffer initially promised in his early days in charge of the outfit.

His Manchester United replacement Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is coming under increasing pressure at Old Trafford following the Red Devils' inconsistent performances.

What will have disappointed Solskjaer the most is that United hauled themselves back into the match against a side who had lost 16 of their previous 17 matches against established top-six opponents. However, the boss did add United could still get an injury boost in the midfield with the return of Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matić.

In the attacking third, the likes of James and Rashford could start in wide attacking positions behind lone center forward Anthony Martial.

"It doesn't make me concerned", Solskjaer said.

Manchester United were held to a standstill again, this time by Aston Villa.

While United are only two points behind fifth-placed Tottenham they are a whopping 22 behind arch-rivals and Premier League leaders Liverpool.

'At United I won and I learned.

"I am good. Absolutely no problem. For me, when we get players back fit, if we've got the full squad fit, I'm sure we can challenge and move up the table".

"I'm not going to tell anyone how to run their football clubs, but I think everyone knows continuity is one of the keys of success", said Solskjaer. United have only four league wins this season and their points tally of 18, at this stage, is their worst return since the 1988/89 season.
