Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sets sights on trophies for Man Utd this season

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has welcomed the introduction of extra substitutions and expanded squads as Manchester United look to hit the ground running when the Premier League resumes.
‘Project Restart’ is in full flow and United are set to resume action at Tottenham in the eagerly-anticipated June 19 trip to Tottenham – 99 days after they last took to the field in the Europa League last-16 first leg at LASK.

United will go from famine to feast with a home match against fellow European qualification hopefuls Sheffield United on June 24, with the FA Cup quarter-final at Norwich and league match at Brighton swiftly following.

It will be a hectic period of intense matches that will see Solskjaer lean on his squad as they look to kick on up the standings and end the season with silverware.

“It does feel like a new season but then again, the first two games against Tottenham and Sheffield United are vital for the league standings, the table,” said the United boss, whose side sit in fifth.

“And it’s a short season, it’s only nine (league) games so can we get as many points and good performances as possible.

“If we do get a good spell now, we could end up with some trophies and something to cheer about.

“Of course, when you get to Man United, you want to end the season with trophies. But trophies won’t be what we’re talking about now.
