Manchester United icon Bryan Robson has defended Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s start to the season, believing ‘things are not going too bad’ although he does think the manager ‘has still got a bit of work to do’ on getting his team to gel.

The Red Devils are fourth in the Premier League table, just two points off Chelsea in top spot, but they have already drawn twice and lost once in the league just seven games in.

With the draws coming against Southampton and Everton and the defeat to Aston Villa, the table may look alright, but there are much tougher tests to come than the ones United have already failed to pass.

With a shock defeat to Swiss side Young Boys in the Champions League and a Carabao Cup exit at the hands of West Ham as well, many have not been particularly impressed by Solskjaer’s start to the campaign.

Robson says otherwise, though, and feels it has been solid enough, with summer signings Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane still needing time to bed into the team.

‘You know, things are not going too bad,’ the former midfielder told the Manchester United website. ‘We’ve been beaten in one Premier League game. We haven’t been convincing in our performances but we’re getting results.

‘Now I think everybody is sort of jumping on the bandwagon that this isn’t good enough because of some of the signings we’ve made and the fixture list which is coming up in October.

‘For me, just because we’re playing the best teams doesn’t mean we’re not going to win. I think some of our fans have got it into their heads that we’re automatically going to get beaten when we play Liverpool and City.
