Gary Neville issues Man Utd January transfer window instructions to Solskjaer

Gary Neville has urged Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not to "panic" in the January transfer window, citing Manchester United's fine form as cause for optimism.

The Red Devils have won three of their four matches since they were eliminated from the Champions League with defeat by RB Leipzig earlier this month.

These victories include a 6-2 drubbing of Leeds and a 2-0 win at Everton which ensured progression to the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

United are third in the Premier League with a game in hand on those above them and the mood at Old Trafford is significantly brighter at present compared to earlier in the season.

As such, Neville warned Solskjaer not to upset the balance with ill-judged recruitment.

Asked if the United boss must think carefully about who to sign in January, the pundit said: "If the right player is there they yes, because they need to improve the team.

"But if its not there, I wouldn’t panic. They wont panic because they’ve been doing it a bit better in recent years.

"They’re a confusing bunch because three or four weeks ago, two weeks ago eve, you were looking at this Manchester United team and thinking it’s going to be a tough old season.

"Going out of Europe, the performance in the first half against West Ham was awful. But after beating Everton, the glass looks half full.

"The squad has been used, the performance against Leeds, they’re scoring goals, the depth of the squad looks good. Leicester is another big game, if they go there and win they will really be gathering confidence.

"From three weeks ago, there was a point I thought this would be a real challenge. But I think right now the fans will be happy because the players have a lot of quality.

"If they can get into a rhythm and start to produce performances over 90 minutes consistently, that bunch of players… there’s some big characters and big talents in there. It’s getting better and they are stronger and they have match-winners."
