Manchester United have learned their fixtures for the upcoming 2021-22 Premier League season, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side looking to improve on their second-placed finish in the previous campaign. It was their highest league finish under Solskjaer, but they still ended up 12 points behind champions Manchester City.
Solskjaer has spoken about the need to strengthen his squad this summer, admitting: “We are second best, but too far behind to threaten those who won. Then we have to strengthen ourselves.
“Of course, something will happen in the transition window. The world has become very different than 15-16 months ago, but we have to make some moves on the transfer window, but also with the team.
“It is never possible to sit back. You are constantly looking for reinforcements. Football is dynamic, so unexpected things can happen such as injuries, illness, something familiar or that someone wants to move.
“You have to take everything possible into consideration and reflection. I will never sit down and think that ‘now the team is the way I want it to be’, because you always see some other players or other teams doing something you want.”
