Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been implementing “new ideas” in Manchester United‘s training and the manager is impressed with the team’s spirit as training intensity is all ramped up ahead of the Premier League’s resumption.

Premier League confirmed the fixtures for first three-match rounds of the 2019-20 season which will resume from June 17.

United will get their 2019-20 campaign back underway in two weeks’ time at Tottenham, more than three months after their most recent match – the 5-0 Europa League win at LASK on March 12.

Prior to the coronavirus-enforced break, United had hit a strong run of form, enjoying an 11-match unbeaten streak across all competitions, including Premier League wins over Chelsea and Manchester City.

Looking forward to games for ages – Solskjaer

With Pogba yet to play alongside new signing Bruno Fernandes, United fans are understandably excited at the prospect, and Solskjaer confirmed the team has been working on fresh “ideas” in training.

“Training has been about recapping what we did well, tweaking maybe one or two things and looking at some new ideas,” he told United’s official website.

“We’ve been looking forward to these games for ages really. It does make it feel like, ‘Yes, we’re here soon’. The first game is two weeks from today [Friday], so we need to step up the training and get an edge to our game again.

While the coronavirus suspension prevented players from training together for nearly three months, Solskjaer was thrilled to see they have managed to keep themselves fit, and he believes the competitive edge is beginning to shine through now contact training is allowed.

Tussle for the Champions League spot 

“Everyone knows that we will have to be at our best, have to be focused [against Tottenham]. We know it’s a big game for everyone. We had Chelsea when we started the league this season, so I’m confident that our players can go into the Tottenham game with that mentality of going there to play a very good game of football.” 

Before the suspension of the league, Liverpool was at the top of the standings and 25 points clear of the second placed-Manchester City. 

United are fifth in the Premier League, three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea and two ahead of Wolves and Sheffield United, as the tussle for the final Champions League spot looks set to go to the wire.
