Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been left content with the recent improvement of Manchester United.

Following their 2-1 victory over Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Friday evening, the Red Devils have now won eight of their last 10 Premier League fixtures, only drawing against Manchester City and Leicester.

The latest three points fired United level on points at the top with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool after 16 fixtures, with the two sides set to go head-to-head on January 17 at Anfield.

Their Norwegian boss has now given his thoughts on their impressive league position, noting that his team have been steadily improving as the season has gone on.

“We’ve improved and we’re getting better,” he said on Friday.

“I think the league and the season is going to be so tight, anyway. There’s going to be difficult games, there’s going to be strange results. We’ve just got to keep working and improving as a team.

“We’ve done that and since Project Restart I think we’ve been a very consistent team.”

Before adding of their potential title involvement: “Every time you win a game, of course, you take one step further and it’s three points.

“In total you’ve just got to accumulate the points. The first game is just as important as the last game of the season. They all count the same.”

The former Cardiff boss went on to insist that he has not yet thought about their upcoming clash against Liverpool with the trip to Burnley on January 12 preceded by their League Cup semi-final against City and FA Cup third round tie at home to Watford.

He said: “I’ve not started thinking about that.

“We’ve got a big game here on Wednesday against City at Old Trafford.

“There are so many games you can’t think four days ahead really because there’s always something just around the corner.”
