Solshire, on facing Manchester City: An opportunity to test ourselves

 Solshire, on facing Manchester City: a chance to test ourselves ... and a record that will be broken

Manchester United coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees Sunday's confrontation with Manchester City as an opportunity for them to test themselves against a very good opponent.

The two teams meet in the twenty-seventh round of the English Premier League, at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City is currently top of the English Premier League with 65 points, while Manchester United are in second place with 51 points.

"Our focus is only on this match and not where we will end the league, we just have to be the best version of us, and we try to improve last season," Solskjaer said in remarks published in the Daily Mail.

He added: "This means climbing the league table and getting more points. I hope to challenge and win the title. What other teams do we cannot control. Manchester City is in front of us with a reasonable distance, and Sunday is an opportunity to test ourselves against a very good team."

He continued: "Manchester City is the only team that leads us, we will try to retrieve the points and approach them. They have had a wonderful period, 21 consecutive wins, we also had 21 away games without defeat, one of the records will be broken, so let's see which number it is."

And he continued, "There are still 11 matches we have to play in the league. I always said, let's go to the month of March or April before talking about the title race after only 18 or 19 games."

And he added: "We have given ourselves a very good opportunity to improve, we prefer to be in this situation now than last season, there are a lot of high-quality teams in the Premier League. We know that what we can control is ourselves, if we do our work and get as many as possible." From the points, we will be there. "

"We want to win every match, but if we compare ourselves to last season, we are more advanced in the league, and we are still competing in Europe and the FA Cup," he concluded.
