Ole Gunnar believes Man City will be among the top contenders for the Premier League crown this season, stating that his side can win with maximum effort and maximum sacrifice.


What did Solskjaer say?

United is one of a string of contenders for the silverware, agonistically approaching the Norwegian’s first tenure trophies, with a runner-up top race finish and heart of a penalty kick in the Europa League final. With the expected addition of Varane and Sancho to the ranks at Old Trafford, however, the Red Devils have improved their squad and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn’t see why they can’t end their drought permanently. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that he would rather be an optimist and be wrong than a pessimist and be right. Of course, these boys can win the title with maximum effort and maximum sacrifice.

It feels like the upcoming season is one of the strongest seasons in the Premier League. It has been Liverpool and Man City fighting him for some time now, but they and Chelsea have done well and should look at themselves as potential contenders. The Norwegian further highlighted the importance of a good start to the new campaign, borrowing a phrase from his City Guardiola rival and saying that you cannot win the league in the first eight games, but you can lose the chance to win it and that is what happened to them last season.


A little about the topic

After hitting the spot against Villarreal in the Europa League final – and cutting back on City’s last-term title run – United will embark on a new campaign ripe with confidence. Although they will be forced to fight without some key stars like Rashford – recovering from an injury from Euro 2020 on duty with England – the arrival of Raphael Varane and Jadon Sancho signals their intention to challenge their cross-country rivals for dominance. City themselves are looking at the big spending window too, bringing Grealish for a UK record transfer fee, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will still feel he has the tools to push it even further this time.
