Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said Sunday’s Derby against Manchester City is the best game to bounce back from their run of draws, as their blood will be boiling.

 

The Red Devils have failed to score in their last three fixtures and Solskjaer feels they have been missing something recently.

 

But the Norwegian is hoping his players can thrive on their good record against the league leaders – having won home and away against City last season.

 

“It’s always the perfect game to get everyone going again,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports News.

 

“You get tested against a very good team, in form. As a Manchester United player we know how much this means for our fans.

 

“For this team, we’ve had some of our best moments against City, away and at home. We’ve seen how we can do it. You’ve got to defend well, and you’ve got to attack well.

 

“When you walk on to the pitch, and you play a team that is in such a good vein of form, you know that you have to perform.

 

“The butterflies come into play, you know, the blood is boiling, you’re getting ready, thinking, ‘This is a test for me and this is a challenge’.

 

“These are the challenges you sign up to when you sign for Man United because you perform in these big games, that’s the next step for us.”
