Mourinho led United to just nine wins in 17 Premier League matches while Solskjaer has managed two back-to-back wins over former club Cardiff and Huddersfield.
But the Norwegian coach insists there are things they need to improve and is going to work on it, with 19 games to go.
“There are things we need to improve we are in this position for a reason,” he told a press conference ahead of United’s clash with Bournemouth on Sunday.
“We’ve not been consistent, not been able to keep clean sheets, not scored enough goals, conceded two goals on set pieces now.
“The open play of defending has been good but we need to get back to the habit of not conceding goals.”
“There’s loads of things, in a football team you always look to things to improve on.”
“I’m coming from the outside, it’s hard to make a difference,” he continued.
“My job has been to speak to the players, know their feelings, confidence levels, every single one has a responsibility to improve.”
What a start!
