Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his side will not 'capitulate' like they did last season when they visit Goodison Park to face Everton on Sunday.
The Reds suffered a humiliating 4-0 loss against Everton last time they visited the grounds, with Solskjaer apologizing to the traveling crowd after the final whistle.
He, however, feels the current crop of players will not let that happen and is confident of leaving Merseyside with maximum points, while also terming the humiliation his lowest point.
“That was the lowest I have been,“ he conceded. ”We know that we remember that it was just a capitulation.
“We had absolutely nothing about us, even though all the goals were counter-attacks from set-plays, long balls from throw-ins. But everything you didn’t want to see, we saw in that game.
“Everton, at home, they are hard to play against with the two up front. With the strikers, they put balls into the box, we knew what we were up against so I’m 100 percent sure we will put a better performance up.
“I can, with hand on heart, 100 percent say these boys will never give in, and never give up like that team did. These are the boys we want to build the next team around.”
Solskjaer further revealed that the humbling led him to the conclusion that he had to reconstruct the squad to be competitive enough.
“That was the day, well the lowest, but I knew probably before then,“ he added. ”But that was when one or two had their last chance more or less. But we had to get to the summer first.
United are chasing a top-four finish that will guarantee them Champions League football next season, and currently trail Chelsea, who are in fourth, by three points.
