REVEALED: Man Utd boss Solskjaer now Guardiola's toughest ever opponent

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is proving the toughest opposing manager of Pep Guardiola's career.

United played out a 0-0 draw with Guardiola's Manchester City on Saturday.

The statistics apply to those who have met Guardiola in five games or more.

Solskjaer tops the table with an average of 1.67 points per match, after Saturday's 0-0 draw.

Of Guardiola's 252 games as City boss, only 23 have ended without his team scoring. Three of these 23 have come against Solskjaer's United.

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp finds himself behind Solskjær, in second place, with his 1.50 on average.
