Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks Manchester United have developed “an identity” this season under his stewardship.
The Red Devils beat Chelsea 2-1 in the Carabao Cup in midweek, however they still sit a disappointing seventh in the Premier League, seven points off the Champions League spots.
United head to Bournemouth on Saturday looking for a fourth successive away win in all competitions and Solskjaer was asked to evaluate the Premier League season to date.

“It’s hard to evaluate after just 10 games and cup games, but some fine margins,” Solskjaer told a press conference on Friday.
“We’ve played really well at times, developed a team spirit, an identity, more intensity and aggression in the team and suffered a bit from injuries.”
On confidence, Solskjaer added: “Our confidence is getting better. Wednesday’s game was decided by an unbelievable strike by Marcus (Rashford), obviously.
“In Belgrade, there was some great last-ditch defending. And Norwich — I thought that was a good game.
“Fine margins decide football games at this level. It’s so much easier when you get confidence or momentum from previous results.
“At the moment, the boys are playing more on instinct rather than taking that extra split second to think.”
