Lingard reveals when Man Utd can challenge for title under Solskjaer

Manchester United star Jesse Lingard has praised the impact of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his assistant Mike Phelan since their arrival at the club.

The Norwegian has enjoyed an unbeaten start to life as caretaker boss at Old Trafford and has United firmly back in the hunt for the top four having been so far behind.

Despite rumours that Mauricio Pochettino and Zinedine Zidane are being lined up for the summer, there have been suggestions Solskjaer could land the job permanently.

Lingard appears to have supported that notion, insisting he has been ‘faultless’ so far.

“Solskjaer and Mike Phelan have brought back the old school Manchester United . They know the league and the club inside out so to pass that on and get us playing how we are has been perfect,” Lingard told the Mail.

“Solskjaer is doing very well. Nobody can fault him. He has taken a lot on but he already knew what he was doing when he came in. He got the players backing him straight away.

“He told us there are big expectations and pressure at this club but we have to deal with it and play like a real United team. We will challenge for the title next season if we carry on how we are now.”
