Solskjaer: Man United must rediscover spark in derby

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his side needs to rediscover their spark when they take on Manchester City this Sunday. 

United were on top of the table on January 26th but now trail leaders City with 14 points heading to the Etihad tie. The Red Devils' title challenge has been all but ended by winning just two of eight top-flight matches during that period, with Wednesday’s lifeless 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace the latest frustrating result.

That underwhelming night did, though, see their unbeaten away league streak extend to 21 matches – a run that will be tested to the maximum by a City side who have won 21 successive games in all competitions.

"I don’t worry. I can only control what’s happening here at Man United and there are so many differences between the clubs," Solskjaer said.

"If it’s the clubs you talk about, I can sit here and talk about a lot. At the moment they’re the only team ahead of us. Of course, we want to try and claw back points on them and get closer to them. They’ve gone through a fantastic spell at the moment, great form, 21 wins."

“We’ve had 21 away games in the league unbeaten, so one record is going to be broken, so let’s see which one it is.”
