Manchester United implement 'new ideas' ahead of resumption

Football is set to return after three months on June 17.

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 ramped up ahead of the Premier League's resumption.

United face fellow European qualification hopefuls Sheffield United on June 24, with the FA Cup quarter-final at Norwich and league match at Brighton following soon afterwards. For this reason the Premier League clubs have agreed managers will be able to make up to five substitutions per match from an expanded nine-strong bench as a way of helping sides cope with a three-month backlog of fixtures.

"The first game is two weeks from today so we need to step up the training and get an edge to our game again", Solskjaer told United's website on Friday.

'With Pochettino... But I don't know maybe they thought the amount Sporting wanted was too much so in that moment Sporting decide they don't want to sell.

They did, and the angle of the question was simply whether the La Liga club should sign him, and Herrera suggested his former teammate needs consistency and to display his best football at all times: "Paul has it all, but a player of that price is required to be always very good".

Man United's Solskjaer vows to hit the ground running against Tottenham in Premier League return

Manchester United's run-in should see them pick up a host of points with Tottenham arguably being their toughest opponents.

"If we do get a good spell now, we could end up with some trophies and something to cheer about".

"It's a young team with some great talent, some great work-rate, personalities... the human qualities in the group are fantastic".

That resurgence was in spite of injuries to key players Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba, both of whom are expected to be available again when the season recommences.

Solskjaer was cautious about their prospects of playing against Mourinho's Spurs first up.

"At that time [last summer] it was Tottenham that was closer to me".
