Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he plans to wipe off the smile on Thomas Tuchel’s face at Chelsea, MySportDab reports.
On Sunday, United travel to Stamford Bridge to face a Chelsea team on a run of eight matches unbeaten across all competitions.
However, United’s Coach has warned that his team are focused on stopping Chelsea’s run.
“Thomas has performed very well because it’s not easy half way into a season. But hopefully we will end that run, that’s my main job now,” said Solskjaer.
“We know he’s there now and has changed a lot at Chelsea and it’s a great challenge for us.
“But we have improved, although we aren’t where we want to be like higher up the table and winning many trophies.”
United face a tough run of matches from now till the international break.
After the Chelsea game United travel to face both Crystal Palace and Manchester City before a match at Old Trafford against West Ham.
However, Solskjaer has admitted that the matches will determine how United enter the title run-in.
He added: “We have to be focused and take it one game at a time but the three away games are massive for us with Chelsea who are just behind us and then City who are in front of us.
“We can’t give them the chance to run away if we have plans of catching them and we can’t give Chelsea any hope either.
“Every match is important from now until the international break, it’s a big period of six or seven games for us.
“Let’s get past everything and reach the international break.”
Solskjaer could welcome back Edinson Cavani, Scott McTominay and Donny van de Beek back for the visit to Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
"It's gonna be a great challenge…hopefully we can stop that run!"
