  • Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: it will be a miracle if Manchester United challenge for the title next season

It has been a chastening campaign for a side that finished runners-up to Manchester City last term as a modest start under Jose Mourinho left United well adrift of the front-runners before the turn of the year.

"You can't judge Solskjaer as a manager based on what he's done at Molde FK and at Cardiff City where they had a Championship-level group of players". Solskjaer has major work to do to build to get United back to the pinnacle of the English game.

Solskjaer was unsure about Herrera's future although he could feature on Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects Manchester United to return next season with an improved mentality and attitude after a dismal campaign.

The Manchester United manager has made no secrets about his transfer aspirations and admitted that the club will be vying for quality players this summer.

That said, the Norwegian's performance prior to signing the deal was undeniably impressive, with United winning 14 of their 19 matches in all competitions under Solskjaer as caretaker boss, scoring 40 goals from 244 shots. "Unfortunately, he's really struggled".

TEAMtalk have reported that Leeds are still keen on signing James at the end of the season and hope to have Premier League football to persuade him if they come through the play-offs.

It would be harsh to say that Liverpool didn't have a good season a year ago but after their first-choice keeper Loris Karius made a few high-profile errors, many felt that what Liverpool were missing was a top-class goalkeeper.

"The players have been going through a tough period, good players who towards the end of the season are worn out mentally and physically". "We played some great football at times, and towards the end we've seen that exceptional efficiency we had didn't last and they know we're in for a rebuild".

Man U even made the ideal start to the game, as Scott McTominay found the back of the net in the opening ten minutes.

A number of senior players could leave, with doubts over the futures of Matteo Darmian, Marcos Rojo, Eric Bailly, Juan Mata, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

With Phelan out of the running, sources have told ESPN FC that Darren Fletcher and Rio Ferdinand are being considered for jobs within the new structure.

"It's a big summer", Solskjaer said.

"We're not going to use the first 10 days to build them up".

Relegated clubs will also have something to take down with them. Jesse Lingard would go on to grab a brace before the end of the contest, first converting a penalty himself before getting United's fifth in the 90th minute.
