EPL: Solskjaer speaks on Man United signing new striker after 2-0 loss to Liverpool

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted that the Red Devils doesn’t desperately need to sign a new striker this January transfer window.

The Norwegian said this following his side’s 2-0 defeat to Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

Goals from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah ensured the UEFA Champions League holders defeated Solskjaer’s side at Anfield.

Solskjaer did not feature his number one striker, Marcus Rashford against Jurgen Klopp’s men due to injury.

Rashford will be out of action for Solskjaer’s men at least six weeks, after sustaining a double stress fracture in his back during United’s 1-0 victory against Wolves in the FA Cup some days ago.

“We’ve had many injuries for big players this season,” Solskjaer told BBC Sports after the game.

“It’s just an unfortunate situation we’re in. We might look at some short-term deals as well that could take us through to the summer.

“We don’t desperately need a striker. If the right one is there and it fits for us (but) we’ve got players who are champing at the bit.”
