Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has warned his players to remain focused after the 4-0 drubbing of Chelsea yesterday afternoon.
The Reds rode their luck in the first-half against Frank Lampard’s side, and could have conceded on several occasions as Tammy Abraham and Emerson both hit the woodwork.
But United were clinical in the second-half, scoring with three brilliant moves to put the game way beyond Chelsea’s reach.
It’s a near-perfect start, but Solskjaer has told his players to remain grounded ahead of what promises to be a tough away fixture to Wolves next Monday night.
“When you start the season like this, the club, the supporters, everyone goes home bouncing and happy,” Solskjaer said as quoted by Manchester Evening News.
“Now it’s about levelling out, start focusing on Molineux on Monday. We know the last two games went against them when I was there.”
“So we just have to make sure we do everything we can and there’s no repeat [of] that scoreline.”
Wolves were the surprise package last season, taking points regularly against the top four teams who struggled against Nuno Espirito Santo’s side’s attacking pair of Jota and Diego Jiminez.
They started the season with a draw away to Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester on Sunday, and were perhaps unlucky to have a winning goal ruled out by VAR.
United have lost both of their previous fixtures 2-1 under Solskjaer at Molineux, so it is crucial the Reds can get a result this time out to continue their momentum after yesterday’s victory.
