Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes admission over Manchester City style

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed Manchester united can't play the 'tippy-tappy' football Manchester City do as he is focused on rebuilding the squad. United have enjoyed their 4 - 1 win over Newcastle on Boxing Day after an embarrassing loss to Watford last week. Though the Red Devils' players have outlined their wish to master a possession-based, front-foot approach in pre-season, the club still plays with a counter-attack tactic. Speaking on the club's playing style, Solskjaer said: "I think it has been told in quite certain terms what kind of team we are. They know what we expect. They know when we are at our best. Today I think we showed it and we saw it. Even though we went 1-0 down heads did not drop. We do have to make it hard to play against us. We can’t play tippy-tappy football. We can’t, at this moment in time, play like City. It is only City that can do that. We have to show more energy, drive, urgency and selflessness in every single game. That is the way we have to play at the moment." The club boss also shared his thoughts concerning United's future plans for the next year. "If we get consistent it is not going to go down to the wire. We should get into the top four without waiting for the last game against Leicester. But it might go down to the last game. Who knows? But for me, this team – I have said about next season that we might be challengers for a lot more next year, definitely. Because we are young, but I still expect a lot from this team this year. I expect them to be ready for Burnley because they are next," he added.
