Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he hopes his team will win Saturday’s match against Manchester City at Etihad Stadium.
United beat Tottenham to emerge sixth in the Premier league after a run of winless games which has been described as the worst since 1989.
“We’re going away against arguably the best team in England,” said Solskjaer whose team is four points behind the fourth position in Premier League.
“It will be a difficult game but we need consistency.”
“Before everyone was doom and gloom but it’s a chance to turn that doubt into belief,” added Solskjaer.
“If we can manage to get another performance – [with] the confidence, the way we played against Tottenham – then we can come out of it with a result.”
Manchester City boss, Pep Guardiola has said match against United is “important” despite being 11 points ahead and currently 3rd in Premier League.
“Good rival, big history, of course it is a big game,” the Spaniard added.
“I have all the respect for what they have done for English football, European football and world football. They will always be United – a good team.”
Meanwhile, United forward, Anthony Martial who didn’t feature in Tottenham match will feature in Saturday’s match. But Paul Pogba will remain absent a he is still dealing with his ankle injury.
“We hope to have Anthony definitely for part of the game, not sure if he’s able to start,” Solskjaer revealed.
“Paul won’t be ready, no. I hope Paul will be back as soon as possible, he’s out on the grass training.
“I said he would be returning in 2019 so hopefully before the new year.”
