Manchester United: Defiant Solskjaer ready for battle
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he is used to dealing with setbacks during his time with the club, as his side look to bounce back from their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.
The pressure has been mounting on Solskjaer following last Sunday's heavy defeat at Old Trafford, with United sitting seventh in the Premier League standings and priced at 1001.00 to secure a top-four finish heading into their away clash with Tottenham on Saturday.
Solskjaer far from downbeat
United's overall form has been poor, as they have taken just a solitary point from their previous four top-flight games, but Solskjaer is confident he is the right man to turn their fortunes around.
"I've been through some very bad moments here as a player, when I've been a coach and a manager as well," the 48-year-old said. "I've had to deal with setbacks.
"There have been two or three crises, at least, since I became the manager here. One thing I can say is, I'll always give it a good shot and fight back."

Solskjaer acknowledged it has been a difficult week for his side in the wake of the defeat to Liverpool, but he has been pleased by what he has seen from his players on the training pitch.
"It's been a difficult week of course, we've had to deal with the result and performance against Liverpool," the Norwegian added.
"That's something footballers have to deal with, and we have to look forward to the next game and make sure we are ready for that game. We've had a good week on the training field."
Pogba the only absentee
United have been boosted ahead of Saturday's trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, with Solskjaer confirming Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial are both set to return from injury lay-offs.
That leaves Paul Pogba - who is suspended following his sending-off against Liverpool - as the only confirmed absentee.
"Of course Paul is suspended, but apart from that, it’s a fully fit squad," Solskjaer added.
