#OleOut! Manchester United stumbles to the ground on Newcastle clash

Share

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes there are plenty of away games his side ‘should have won’ in their run of poor form.

United are enduring a horrid slump in confidence and performance levels which stretches back to their remarkable comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.

Coincidentally, the trip to Paris in early March was the last time Solskjaer’s side won a match away from home, a run that has now stretched to 10 matches.

In that time United have travelled to the likes of Everton, Huddersfield, Southampton and West Ham, with the latest failure to win on the road coming in Thursday’s dull 0-0 draw with AZ Alkmaar.

United travel to St. James’ Park on Sunday to take on Newcastle United – a team in an even worse state of affairs than themselves – and Solskjaer is hopeful they’ll finally be able to end their run of negative results.

“Yeah, definitely. I’ve always enjoyed my games there, great stadium,” the Norwegian said when asked by MUTV if he was looking forward to the trip.
