Man United have so far played just one match in the new season of the Premier League and that has ended in an embarrassing loss at home.

Now Ole’s men will be looking to set the record straight this weekend as they take on Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on Saturday.

Man United go into this game as the favourites obviously but there’s fear that they could once again drop points as Brighton could look to defend deep and attack on the break.

This same kind of ploy was used by Crystal Palace and Manchester United found it really hard to break down their defence. But Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident his side will not make the same mistakes this weekend.

He said in his pre-match press conference: “I wasn’t happy with the game against Palace, of course I wasn’t.

“We weren’t ready to play at the intensity we needed and the quality that we needed. Runs weren’t there. Then again, after the restart in June and July, I thought we’d taken big strides.

“One game lives its own life and I think the Palace one was a very disappointing one, but I’m still confident that we still can break teams down with our quality. But we need some more imagination and some more quality than what we had in that game, that’s for sure.

“It’s been a good week – some players have been training more. The work on the training ground has been good and some played well against Luton.

“So we’re further down the line, which other teams probably are as well. We need to be further down the line because last week was a disappointing one.”

Players like Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba are slowly coming up to speed and we are pretty sure we will see a more improved performance from Man United on Saturday.
