United lost the league title to the fiercest rivals Liverpool who clinched the trophy for the first time in 30 years after Chelsea defeat Man City at Stamford Bridge.

Solskjaer is now on a quest to help United overcome Norwich City in the quarter finals of the FA Cup at Carrow Road.

"We've always had challengers, whether it was Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool. But most of the time it was just one of them challenging us," Solskjaer said.

"Finishing third wasn't normal. Now there are at least four, maybe five teams that can win the league and the cups.

"For me, every time you see anyone else lift the trophy, it hurts. I reckon that's the feeling for everyone associated with Manchester United."
