Man United should never be outworked, says Solskjaer

For the first time this Premier League season, Manchester United covered more distance on the pitch than its opponent and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says that's just the kind of drive he wants from his team.

Against Cardiff City, United scored five in a Premier League match for the first time since Alex Ferguson's farewell match in 2013, and marked an ideal start to life for Solskjaer, who replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho on Wednesday.

It was put to Solskjaer that this is the first league game in 2018-19 in which United had outrun its opponents - it covered 104 kilometres compared to Cardiff's 99 - and the former Norway star stressed that such work rate is a minimum requirement.
