Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his players have no cause to be carried away when they finally top the Premier League table after a win against Burnley on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils are level on points with the Champions and have a game in hand against Sean Dyche’s side at the Turf Moor. Although Burnley won 2-0 at Old Trafford in their last Premier League meeting against United yet a lot has changed under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has an unbeaten run away from home.

They have won six of their seven games and drawn one in the League, staying undefeated in 14 games.

They will take on Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, a game which could propel them ahead should they pick a win at fortress Anfield.

The Red Devils manager seems not to take things too far preferring approach games as underdogs and influencing with their quality which has from them this far.

“Nobody remembers January league tables,” the United manager said as cited on talkSPORTS.

“And if at one point you think: ‘Ah, we’ve made it now, we have cracked it,’ and you relax, that is when it’s going to hit you in the back.

“We have to be aggressive. We have to go into every game humble and not even think for one second that we’ve cracked it if we’re near the top. That’s not the type of players we have.”

Enquired as to whether Manchester United will sign new players, the manager said, “The situation is different now from a year ago, so it’s unlikely something is going to happen,” Solskjaer said.

“But you’re right: Bruno came in and has had a great impact, made us a better team and he’s become a better player as well. If there was something out there that was nailed on I wouldn't say no but it’s likely nothing is going to happen.”
