- Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn't think Liverpool are good enough to win the league
- The Red Devils battled league leaders Liverpool to a barren draw on Sunday
- Solskjaer reportedly told his players the Reds don't have what it takes to be champions
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Liverpool lack quality to be crowned Premier League champions.
According to Daily Mail citing UK Sun, Solskjaer, who replaced Jose Mourinho as Manchester United interim manager mid-December reportedly informed his players after Sunday’s barren draw with Liverpool at home that the Reds are not champion team.
“Ole was very blunt about Liverpool with his players and clearly believes they do not have enough to beat City to the title.
“He thinks they are very one dimensional, lacking creativity. He certainly has faith that his team are a better outfit,” a Manchester United source was quoted as saying by The Sun.
Interestingly, Sunday's 0-0 result at against United Old Trafford saw Liverpool return to the top of the Premier League log, but many are still unconvinced about their quality to beat Manchester City to the Premier League title.

At the moment, Liverpool are still at the summit of the log, one point ahead of Pep Guardiola’s City with 11 games to the end of the campaign.
On the other hand, Klopp was also not impressed with his team’s performance on Sunday, with TV images capturing him yelling “F*****g hell, what a s*** game” to Solskjaer as they exchanged pleasantries at the blast of the referee’s final whistle.
During the encounter, despite enjoying 65 per cent ball possession, Liverpool could only account for one shot on target which did not was definitely poor by the Reds standard.
But the spate of injuries that saw man United lose the trio of Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard while Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino suffering an ankle injury after 30 minutes also contributed in the overall quality of the game.
However, Solskjaer has managed to keep a decent record since taking over the reins of power at Old Trafford, winning eight Premier League games from 10.
