Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that Manchester United will not let Manchester City run away with the Premier League title, despite a rocky run of form that has seen their credentials crumble.
The Red Devils slipped to a frustrating 1-1 draw with relegation-threatened West Brom on Sunday, leaving them well off the pace of Pep Guardiola’s league leaders.
But their manager is refusing to throw in the towel and remains insistent that United can match their neighbours blow-for-blow at the top-flight summit.
Speaking later to Sky Sports News, Solskjaer further expounded on his side’s struggle against his Mancunian rivals, adding:
“I said we shouldn’t be talked about [in the title race].
“[It’s] a compliment for the boys we got into the position we are now. “We won’t let them run away with it – we’re playing them soon. We’re not giving it away early – no we’re not.”
