The victory slightly eased the pressure on the Norwegian United manager after a series of disappointing Premier League results.

Ahead of this weekend’s games, they are five points behind leaders Chelsea and face a formidable clash on Sunday with Liverpool in form.

Liverpool, the only undefeated team in the league, could extend their advantage over United to seven points if they win.

However, Solskjaer gloated over Wednesday’s victory from behind, which saw superstar Cristiano Ronaldo come away victorious with nine minutes remaining.

“It’s something we’ve done many times at the club,” Solskjaer said.

“It’s in our DNA. It’s ‘Never Give In’, (the title of) Sir Alex’s documentary. That’s what our fans expect from us, to give our best all the time.

“If you do that with the quality of the players here, you can win games.

“You can lose games sometimes, but if you give it your all, then it’s a team there.

“I hope this is the end of a bad period for us. Teams always go through bad times and good teams come together. “

Solskjaer is worried about the fitness of Bruno Fernandes, Fred and Marcus Rashford as United try to restart their title campaign.

Defeats to Aston Villa and Leicester and a home draw with Everton left them out of the title rhythm.

Solskjaer said a loss to Liverpool would be a huge challenge to correct the seven-point difference, even if it’s early in the campaign.

“To be seven points behind is going to be a great distance,” said Solskjaer.

“A point in between is close, but we are so early in the season and every point counts just as much.

“We saw last season that every team is going through a bad patch.

“You can’t talk about title contenders now, but we are chasing Liverpool and we know we have to improve and reach their level of the last four years. “
