Man United take on Arsenal on Monday and this match comes at a time when the Old Trafford outfit are going through a rough phase.

During the 2018-19 season, Man United have managed to pick up only two wins out of their first six matches and right now they sit 11th in the Premier League table.

While in Europe and in the cup competitions, Ole’s men have managed to pick up wins but in almost every game they have just about managed to cross the line.

And this why a lot of pundits are predicting another loss when Arsenal visit Old Trafford on Monday.

But now speaking to Sky Sports, the Man United manager has made it clear that he is at the club not to patch things up but to build a dynasty – which obviously needs time.

“It’s not like the situation we had last year,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“There’s no lack of desire there. For us it’s about building a new culture, building a new team, bringing everybody together. Is it the job I expected? Yes. I never said this was going to be a quick-fix job. It’s step after step after step.

“Of course, we’ve hit a few bumps in the road, I never said this was going to be a quick-fix job. Rome wasn’t built in a day.

“We need time, and the attitude of the boys has been great. [We must] keep working on improving the understanding and relationships between all players, and the style we want to play.

“I think hard work is important, but you have to do the right work. I think we’ve got further in our shape work when we haven’t got the ball than when we do have the ball. To create is more difficult than to stop.

“If you look at Aaron and Dan, 21-year-olds, they’re coming in and doing a good job. We’re not expecting them to be leaders, but they’ll have longevity, and they’ll stay in the club and the team for many, many years.

“Harry is a different player; he was the one centre-back we wanted, and the one we felt was the missing jigsaw in that defence.

“He was for now and the future, because he’s only 26. I’m delighted with those three, both for now and for the future. It’s not just signing players for the sake of it, you have to sign the right ones. The injuries we’ve had have mostly been to forward players, so it has been more difficult to settle that front four or five.”
