Man United boss Solskjaer rates Arteta's job at Arsenal so far

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed Mikel Arteta for the job he has done at Arsenal since his arrival last year. 

Solskjaer will be leading United at Old Trafford this Sunday with the Norwegian admitting he is expecting a tough game. The two sides have not had a good start to the current campaign, with the Gunners losing three of the last three of their opening matches. On the other end, United, who are 15th on the log have lost two of their home games, where they've conceded nine goals. 

The United boss has failed to beat Arsenal during his time in charge and Sunday's match will mark his 100th game as the manager while Arteta will be in charge of 39 games. Despite the Spaniard not being with the north London club for a long period, Solskjaer has been impressed with his output. 

"Any manager would need some time to put his principles and plays, he’s already won a trophy with them and you can see what he’s doing," he said during a press conference. 

"You can see he’s got his own ideas and that he’s also worked under a top manager before, definitely."

"Then you’re at the start of your career as a manager and you can start winning already it’s a great foundation to build from. ‘They’ve really found a manager who wants the best for the club. Arsenal is always going to be difficult because they are a very good team with a good manager who has got some great ideas on how football should be played and I’m looking forward to it."
