Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that the Red Devils will struggle to challenge the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title next season.
According to him, Premier League title chasers Liverpool and Manchester City are miles ahead of Manchester United and it will take time to catch up with them.
Solskjaer was speaking about Liverpool and Manchester City during his pre-match press conference ahead of the Manchester Derby clash in the Premier League on Wednesday night.
The Norwegian tactician further revealed that Manchester United need the right quality, right personality and the right standards to level up with the best teams.
Manchester United will find out the extent of the gap between them and city rivals Manchester City when they face off at the Theatre of Dreams.
The Red Devils have lost six of their last eight games in all competitions including the weekend’s 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Everton.
Solskjaer and his players suffered their worst performance of the season against the Toffees at the weekend.
Richarlison, Lucas Digne, Gylfi Sigurdsson and substitute Theo Walcott were amongst the goals for the home side against Manchester United.
Manchester United fans would be hoping for a reaction from their players against a Manchester City team looking for a win to secure top spot.
