Manchester United should look forward to playing at Old Trafford – Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

MANCHESTER UNITED’S flops have been told to fall back in love with Old Trafford.

The Theatre of Dreams has been a nightmare venue this season, with only four wins on home soil, the same as lowly Cardiff and 13th Brighton.

Manchester City have taken 27 points at the Etihad and Liverpool and Arsenal have racked up seven home wins.

The highest point of United’s league campaign so far came in Wales last week when they spanked the Bluebirds 5-1 with some tantalising football.

And interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his rejuvenated players to kick-start their home form with the visit from Huddersfield on Boxing Day.

And the former super-sub said: “Of course, you try to keep your emotion in check because I’m there to do a job, I’ve got to be focused.

“It’s not easy, I don’t think it will be easy, but I’m looking forward to it and I think the boys are looking forward to playing at Old Trafford.

“That’s the key, we should be looking forward to playing there.”

Even after that Cardiff romp, United remain down in sixth place only two points ahead of Watford and ahead of Bournemouth by only one win.

League leaders Liverpool are a whopping 19 points ahead of United and confidence has been named as a factor in United’s domestic demise.

But Solskjaer has told his millionaire internationals that pressure and stress come with the territory.

He said: “That comes when you sign for Man United.

“Confidence is not something you store into the fridge and pick out.

“You earn it by your performances, by your training, how you feel.”
