Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said the Manchester United manager’s job is not too big for him, but admits summer decisions have “harmed” his team.

United could end the weekend in the bottom three if they lose to Liverpool on Sunday, but Solskjaer said he believes he can handle the mounting pressure at Old Trafford.

“I’ve never felt it’s too big for me,” Solskjaer told a news conference on Friday.

“I’m confident in what we’re trying to do and with my staff, I’ve been so impressed.

“We have a plan and we have made some decisions in the short term that we knew would harm us but in the long term would benefit us, and that’s part of the plan.

“Results are always the main thing and we can move forward quicker with results and performances.”

Solskjaer said he stands by his decision to let Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez leave without signing replacements, despite a struggle for goals that has seen United net just five times in their last seven games.
