Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United’s improved mentality is helping them grind out results in tight games this season.
This comes after Man United managed to come back from behind to beat Fulham 2-1 on Wednesday and go top of the Premier League table.
Man United went behind early to Ademola Lookman’s clinical finish but responded through Edinson Cavani’s fourth away goal of the league campaign. Paul Pogba then sealed all three points with a stunning strike.
“We’ve done better in tighter games. We’ve won loads of 1-0s and 2-1s. When you add those up at the end of the season it means many points,” said Solskjaer.
“That was a point we spoke about early on before the season had started, that we needed to stop getting draws and win more games. We’ve shown great improvement in mentality as well as physical robustness.”
Solskjaer’s side are two points clear of Manchester City, who have played a game less and will face Liverpool in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday before taking on Sheffield United in the league next Wednesday.
