While Solskjaer hopes to change the mood among his squad, the Manchester United manager praised the fans for their continued support amid their recent poor form.
“The fans are great I have to say. It’s easy to be positive when I see them, they have been very positive with me. They see what you are doing and they keep going.
“We want to pay them back for their loyalty and support by getting better results and better performances. I can assure them we are working hard to do so.”
‘Injuries not down to overworking players’
“You have to be fit in modern football and we haven’t worked them too hard, no,” Solskjaer said.
“The work has been great. I trust my staff, the sports science, the physios and the coaches – they’re great, absolutely spot on.

“If you see the work behind the scenes, if you were in my shoes, you’d say ‘there are things happening that are going the right way’.
“The injuries we have had are frustrating of course but they are part and parcel of being a footballer.”

“I can say [I am a striker short], but that was the decision that I made and I made it happily,” he added.

“I don’t want to speak too much about other players. I have got lots of respects for Romelu but his time was up here.
