Solskjaer concedes Man City have set a new standard

SHOWS: MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (APRIL 24, 2019) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "No, of course, of course, you're at home against a very good team, but still at home you want to win games like this.

But they've set the standard.

The last couple of seasons they've been the best team in the country.

And that's the challenge for us, to get to.

And we're clearly not there now.

And I think that's for everyone to see, but that's what I'm in the job for.

To make sure that we improve and get closer to them." 2.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) MANCHESTER UNITED COACH, OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER, SAYING: "Well I think I'm concerned about the lack of results that we get.

In times like these its not time to point fingers at anyone and blame anyone.

We got to stick together.

And the strange reality is that we're still within a shout for the top four.

We've got Chelsea here on Sunday.

You could see a reaction here today from the lads which is all good.

But we need more quality as well on Sunday because we need to win that game.

And if we win it, then there's two games to make sure we get enough points and goals." STORY: Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made no attempt to disguise the gulf in quality between his team and Manchester City, describing Pep Guardiola's side as "the best team in the country" after they won 2-0 at Old Trafford on Wednesday (April 24).

Solskjaer had demanded his players react to their 4-0 loss to Everton on Sunday (April 21) and United did begin the match with aggression, battling hard until City went ahead through Bernardo Silva in the 54th minute.

City strolled to victory in the second half with United flagging as they chased after a stream of precise passes from Guardiola's side.

United have lost seven of their last nine games in all competitions, a run of form which contrasts markedly with the positive start to Solskjaer's reign in December.

A Champions League spot remains within their grasp, however, with United sat in sixth place, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea, who they play on Sunday (April 28).
