Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is convinced Manchester United will 'bounce back' to win the Premier League again - and added that it won't take them as long as Liverpool have taken to potentially win the league again.
The United boss is well aware of the challenges he is faced with this season as well as the problem associated with his team's abysmal start to the season, but he is confident that they will not have to endure a waiting period of 30 years before they win the Premier League title again.
When the Reds were crowned champions of England in 1990, they led the Red Devils 18-7 in terms of league titles. After the final success of Sir Alex Ferguson’s glorious reign in 2013, it was 20-18 in United’s favour.
Six years have passed since and the Old Trafford club have never threatened to win the league title. But that seems nothing compared to the time that has elapsed since Sir Kenny Dalglish’s team were victorious, with seven other clubs sharing the spoils in the ensuing period.
Speaking ahead of the match, Solskjaer said to Sky Sports, "I am sure we will bounce back and win the league. And I am sure it won't be 30 years until the next Premier League that we do win."
United are 15 points behind Jurgen Klopp's league leading side, who have not lost a single game yet this season.
"A good performance and result for us here can turn a season. It can change players' confidence, players' mood, their perception of what is good. Maybe they haven't really believed they are good enough at times. With a lack of confidence, you think twice instead of acting on instinct. But I know these players are good enough - no worries about that," he concluded.
