My squad is not listening to early talk of a Premier League title challenge right now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said.
Ole recently revealed that Manchester United will pay no attention to such distractions as more focus is on the improvement of his players.
According to him, there is always noise around the club anyway, so the team will just have to concentrate on taking it one game at a time.
Ole added that he is happy with the praise the team is getting at the moment, so his boys must keep working hard for it to continue.
His words, “There is noise around Man Utd anyway so for us it’s about improving as a team, taking one game at a time and we have to, that’s the name of the game,”
“That is the only way that you are going to challenge for anything at the end of the season anyway so it’s not something that we talk about.
“The only thing that we talk about and focus on is improving day by day and learning how to deal with certain situations and maybe now at the moment we are getting praise and that’s another thing to learn to deal with.”
“He (Martial) has made important contributions lately, he has assists, scored goals, he is getting fitter, he showed it against Leeds, and he knows that I am on to him about this, and his running stats from that game set a new standard for him, which I want to see more of,” Solskjaer explained.
“He’s always going to have the quality and maybe his confidence has been bruised a little bit by what happened earlier on in the season with the red card [against Tottenham] and he has had some criticism but Anthony is going to get better and better and, when we get Mason, Marcus and Anthony firing on all cylinders, we will be more of a threat for teams.”
“It’s game by game now, we have to think that way,”
“We have had some very good games against Leicester, very tight games, they are a very good side with a very good coach and I have enjoyed watching them under Brendan, so it was a big test for us to go to their stadium in the summer and we passed that one with flying colours.
“We played a controlled game and I know it will not be the same now because it’s a different time of the season but they have got some threats that you have to look for and we will just have to sit down and think about it and who is fit and not fit.”
