Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his players will not be thinking they have “cracked it” as they look to go top of the Premier League.

United are level on 33 points with leaders Liverpool and will leapfrog them if they avoid defeat at Burnley..

Solskjaer’s side make the trip to Turf Moor before travelling to Liverpool on Sunday.

“We have to be aggressive,” Solskjaer said before the Burnley game.

“We have to go into every game humble, work hard, don’t even think for one second that you’ve cracked it if you are near the top because that’s not the type of players we have.”

Solskjaer’s side are the only team who are unbeaten away from home in the top flight this season, having won six of their seven league games on the road.

“We have players who should play on the front foot, aggressive, work hard and be hard to play against no matter what,” Solskjaer added.

“But of course the group mentality is improving all the time so now it’s a different challenge, it’s Burnley away and we’re in this position.

“It doesn’t matter where we end up in the league as long as we focus on this game and this game only.”
