Alexis Sanchez reveals what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Manchester United players

Man Utd have won each of their seven fixtures since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took charge at Old Trafford in December..

Alexis Sanchez has revealed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Manchester United's players it was down to them to fuel the club's push for a top-four finish.

United were 11 points off the Champions League spots when Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho in December but the deficit is now just three points as a result of the Reds' run of six consecutive top-flight victories.

Sanchez has barely featured under Solskjaer but he suggested the Norwegian's philosophy is better suited to United's players than his predecessor's was.

"The players are the same with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they were with Mourinho," Sanchez told the Mirror. "But now we are having more ­success in attack and we are defending better.

"The fact he has so much ­history with this club opens the way a lot when he speaks. His philosophy is to touch the ball a lot, to control the game and to score goals.

"You can tell that his position on the field as a player was as a forward, but he still wants us to take good care of our penalty area too.

"That’s the way you get better results. The only thing the ­manager told us was that we could improve the situation ourselves.

"He said that everything ­depended on us and it was in our own hands to climb the table."

Sanchez added: "In the end, results in football make the difference and so we are happier than we were before.
