OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is backing himself to get the best out of his star-studded Manchester United squad.
United have won just two of their last six matches, despite splashing out on Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Raphael Varane.
But boss Solskjaer said: “I’m very confident we will get the best out of this squad.
“We’ve had Raphael and Jadon with us for only August and Cristiano only for September.
“We’ve got loads of work…I know that.
“But I do believe in this group and the coaching staff that I’ve got.”
Solskjaer’s position is not believed to be under any immediate threat despite a disappointing run, including Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Everton at home.
In September alone, United lost to Young Boys, West Ham and Aston Villa.

And Solskjaer will be keen to ensure heads do not drop after Ronaldo had a visible strop following the Toffees’ draw.
There is also the issue of Sancho to solve, with the England winger making a slow start to life in Manchester.
And United’s upcoming fixtures don’t get easier, with Liverpool, Tottenham and Man City on the horizon.
Solskjaer added: “You know, I believe in these players and the coaching staff. I believe we have something going.

“The proof is in the pudding. We need results. And we have to turn up.
“We can’t just say we did well against City and Tottenham last year, we need to do it during the 90 minutes, whoever plays, because that’s the challenge.
“Every game in the Premier League and the Champions League is a big game against a good team — every game at Manchester United is a potential banana skin for us. We’re expected to win every one.”
