Manchester United interim manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has challenged his players to improve their performances despite beating Leicester City 1-0 in the Premier League on Sunday.
The win on the night was the Norwegian’s ninth in just 10 games, but he was not happy with the performance, as he believes the players need to push themselves much more as they prepare to face Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Liverpool in three different competitions before the end of February.

“We weren’t happy at half time, I don’t think we can be too happy with the performance and that’s a good thing. We know we’ve got plenty of things to work on and I think we’ll see that progression in the next few weeks because it’s going to be a tough and enjoyable February,” Solskjaer said as quoted by ESPN.
Solskjaer has reinvigorated the club following the dismissal of Jose Mourinho, with the Red Devils climbing up the table, as they are currently placed fifth with 48 points from 25 games, one above sixth-placed Arsenal.
The former United striker who flew to France immediately after the game to watch Champions League opponents Paris Saint-Germain face Lyon, will need a big effort from his players in midweek as the French giants are no pushovers despite losing talisman Neymar to injury.
