Solskjaer's message to Man United ahead of Burnley clash

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has told his Man United players to be aggressive in matches as they prepare for their clash against Burnley on Tuesday night. 

The Reds will go three points clear at the top with a win against Sean Dyche's team in the long-awaited game in hand. 

His side has been impressive in the League, but Solskajer wants them to be more proactive and take their attacking game to Turf Moor. 

“We have to be aggressive. We have to go into every game humble and working hard,” said Ole, who spoke on Monday in his pre-match press conference.

“Don't even think for one second that you've cracked it if you are near the top. That's not the type of players we have; we have players who should play on the front foot, [be] aggressive, work hard, be hard to play against, no matter what. 
 
“But, of course, the group mentality is improving all the time. Now it’s a different challenge. It’s Burnley away and we're in this position. It doesn’t really matter where we'll end in the league after this one, as long as you focus on this game and this game only. The league table doesn’t really matter now, but you pick up points and, when you get to March and April, that’s where the league is going to be more or less decided.”

Solskjaer admitted he was enjoying the title race this season, and he believes his team can stick up there with the rest of the challengers. 

“I think all the teams want to take a grip on the Premier League, of course, but it’s that kind of season, that kind of year and situation where there will be more ups and downs and less consistency in results and performances.

"For me, it’s exciting. As a supporter or a fan, it’s more interesting when there are more teams in and around each other, compared to last season when one just ran away,"
