"I am sure we will bounce back and win the league,” said Solskjaer. “And I am sure it won’t be 30 years until the next Premier League that we do win.”

Liverpool on the other hand have been invincible since the start of the season, winning all eight matches to sit atop of the table with 24 points.

They will however hope to continue their form at the Theater of Dreams later today to ensure they avoid another slip up like they did last campaign.

The last time the Reds succeeded in the EPL was in 1990 when the competition was named First Division, and since then, they have failed to reach the promise land.

Last season, they were at a touching distance but lost the title to Manchester City with just one point separating both sides after match day 38.

Solakjaer further said: "A good performance and result for us here can turn a season. It can change players’ confidence, players’ mood, their perception of what is good.

"Maybe they haven’t really believed they are good enough at times.

"With a lack of confidence, you think twice instead of acting on instinct. But I know these players are good enough – no worries about that.

"It is a different way of leading players and being a captain. “Back in the day, it was straight and to the point.

"We have good, experienced leaders – David [De Gea], Paul [Pogba], Harry [Maguire], Victor [Lindelof].

"But they are leaders in a different way to Roy Keane and Bryan Robson and all those warriors."
