Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said that his team need to perform better irrespective of whoever comes in after a 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
“We defend as a team, we defend from the front and as a group. Whoever we are linked with, it doesn’t mean it’s true. We’re linked with players all day long," he said.
"We need as a group and team to get performances as they were after the restart. We were a very good defensive team then and didn’t concede lots of goals. That is something I have to look at.”
Edinson Cavani and Alex Telles are both expected to undergo medicals at Old Trafford but Solskjaer stressed the need to play better football.
“We’ll probably update you or know by tomorrow night. But that isn’t the battle getting players in. The battle is here and getting the best out of ones who are here. Today was the worst you can get from these players. I can’t say anything more about that."
