Man Utd boss Solskjaer: Guardiola is wrong

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has dismissed Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola's claims Manchester United are in the title hunt.

Guardiola refuses to discount United, who are 14 points behind them, from the current title race. Solskjaer ruled that out.

"We have to move slowly," he said. "We're too far behind this year, obviously. We are fifth at the moment, we've been sixth and it seemed we were never going to move away from that sixth position.

"We've got the resources, the infrastructure and the history to move towards the top and that is the only way we should think about things.

"We cannot just be happy and say, 'Oh, we got three points against Leicester', because we didn't play particularly well.

"The attitude has been, 'We know we didn't play well and we have to improve to get to where we are going'.

"Focus on Fulham, that's the character revealer. The so-called big games, no problem, they'll look after themselves."
