Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists he does not need to receive acclaim for Manchester United's turnaround as he paid little interest to criticism earlier in the season.

Solskjaer has United in the mix for Champions League qualification, two points behind fourth-placed Chelsea in fifth, which may also secure a spot in Europe's elite club competition depending on the outcome of Manchester City's appeal against their two-year ban.

United's form has picked up dramatically since the January arrival of Bruno Fernandes and they are now 15 unbeaten in all competitions.

But Solskjaer says he will not let listen to outside voices regardless of results.

"If you're worried about what others write about you, think about you, say about you, you shouldn't be in this job," he said on Friday.

"What I feel [about praise] doesn't really matter. What I do is with the coaching staff, with the club, trying to improve us. I don't need anyone to say that was the right thing or wrong thing or feel that we've shown we've done the right thing.

"For me, it's just about next game and improving all the time. I believe in a certain way of managing the club, managing players, the staff, and I'm just doing what I think is right.

"That's what I've done all my life more or less, working in football, and sometimes it works out, sometimes it doesn't."

United will be expected to continue their impressive run against struggling Bournemouth in the Premier League on Saturday, but Solskjaer suggests their schedule is not as straightforward as it looks.

"I've seen lots of quotes saying we have an 'easy' run-in," the manager added.

"But the next five games are against Bournemouth, who we lost to in the previous game, Aston Villa, who we drew [with] at Old Trafford, Southampton, we drew with them, we lost to Crystal Palace, lost to West Ham.

"These are teams we've got a point to prove against and we have to improve on the last performance.

"I don't think it's an easy game. What anyone else thinks doesn't matter. We know [that] to win a game of football we'll have to perform."

On the atmosphere at United, he added: "It's been a while since we've been on a run like this. When I first came in, the run was obviously a good one.

"But now definitely we are feeling confident, we are feeling in good form, and [the players] should be, because they worked so hard over the lockdown period.

"They're just getting their sharpness and fitness and match fitness back. And when you perform like you have done - the Sheffield United and Brighton games were really good - they should be confident."

A player of Mesut Ozil's quality will always have a place at Arsenal regardless of what system they play, says Mikel Arteta.

Ozil featured in all of Arsenal's games under Arteta prior to the Premier League being suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic, but he is yet to feature since the resumption.

A back injury kept the midfielder out of the matchday squad for the FA Cup quarter-final victory over Sheffield United last weekend and the 4-0 triumph over Norwich City on Wednesday.

Arteta deployed a 3-4-3 for the visit of the Canaries to Emirates Stadium and thinks Ozil, primarily used as a number 10, could still be useful in that formation.

"I think players can adapt to different systems and we can adapt systems for different players," said Arteta.

"Sometimes it's not just about what we want to play or how we want to play. Sometimes we have to try to fit the players we have available in the right moments in the right positions to perform and be comfortable on the pitch to do what we require them to do.

"There's always a place for a player of his [Ozil's] quality."

Bukayo Saka did not feature against Norwich on the day the club announced he had signed a new contract.

The 18-year-old academy product has been used in attacking and defensive roles on the left since breaking through this season, with Arteta yet to decide on where he will play in the long term.

Asked for Saka's best position, he said: "Evolving, getting better and getting to understand different positions, and finally we will fit him in in one that gives the best.

"But at the moment we need him to float a little bit because he gives a lot of versatility to do different things even with the same shape.

"He understands the position really well, he picks the movements and the situations and when to use the spaces really, really quickly.

"He's very intelligent and I think it's a really good thing for his development to do that."

Saka has scored three goals and supplied 11 assists in 33 appearances in all competitions for Arsenal this season, leading to suggestions he could force his way into the England squad for next year's Euro 2020.

"I don't know," said Arteta when asked if Saka should be looking to nail down a spot in Gareth Southgate's team.

"He should keep performing like he's doing, keep training, keep improving, trying to be the best in training, as he can every day.

"If he does that, we know the potential he has and things will come to him naturally."

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Mason Greenwood has more talent as a teenager than the Manchester United manager possessed as he lauded the 13-goal forward.

Greenwood has enjoyed a breakout season at Old Trafford and provided both a goal and an assist in the midweek win at Brighton and Hove Albion.

The England youth international has often played out wide, but Solskjaer on Friday discussed the possibility of the 18-year-old soon moving into a central striking role he occupied in the academy.

Speaking ahead of Saturday's Premier League meeting with Bournemouth, the manager says Greenwood has made much more progress than he had the same stage of his career.

"We have done well over the course of the season, giving him more and more exposure, more and more game time," Solskjaer said of Greenwood.

"It's not easy being a young boy. He could still play in this season's FA Youth Cup team, so he's a young boy we have to look after.

"But he's performing off the bench or when he starts and he's developed fantastically this season. The sky's the limit - it's up to him.

"He knows what he should do, can do and must do to continue playing, but that's between us.

"He's a centre-forward by trade, but he likes to drift wide, he likes to face forwards, and that's a different role from being the forward up through the middle.

"You see some centre-forwards who have their back to goal, get hold of the ball, link it, which Mason is improving on. His body is filling out and he can play that position.

"I think we can see maybe like we have done with Marcus [Rashford] and Anthony [Martial] as well: they are good centre-forwards, very good footballers, good goalscorers and with good movement. They're not stuck between the posts.

"Mason's way ahead of where I was when I was 18 or 19, that's for sure. He's got a knack of scoring goals - it's difficult to say anything different because it's natural for him. It was what I felt I could do as well.

"He's a brilliant boy to work with. If he keeps on learning, keeps on making better and better decisions, he'll be good."

There had been reports United were looking to boost their squad with another teenager, Birmingham City's 17-year-old Jude Bellingham.

But the midfielder now appears set instead for Borussia Dortmund, although Solskjaer brushed off a question on the youngster.

"I think there's been loads of speculation linking us to every single talented player from the age of 15 to 25 really, so I can't comment on every single player that's been linked with us," he said. "So, no, I can't really comment."

Raul Jimenez is happy at Wolves, where the players are focused only on team success until the end of the season, according to Diogo Jota.

Striker Jimenez has been outstanding for Wolves since his arrival from Benfica in 2018, scoring 41 goals in all competitions.

The Mexico international's performances have even prompted reports of a potential move to Manchester United or Juventus at the age of 29.

But team-mate Jota is confident Jimenez will not become distracted as Wolves battle United, Chelsea and Leicester City for Champions League qualification.

"I think he, like us, is happy here. I think everyone is," Jota told Sky Sports. "And if we are happy, we always play better.

"After, when the season is finished, I think everyone can think about their own career, but until then we go as a team, thinking to do our best each game."

Asked to describe Jimenez, his strike partner added: "I think he's an unbelievable player.

"We signed him when we came to the Premier League and, [although] not from the beginning, I started to create a good relationship with him, not just on the pitch but out of the pitch as well.

"That helps me, it helps him, it helps the team. In the end, that's all that matters, that we can have a great relationship between players.

"Obviously, a clever player like Raul is a finisher, he decides matches. He is really important to us and he is in a good moment now."

Jordan Henderson acknowledged Liverpool "expect more from ourselves" after a humbling defeat at Manchester City but suggested the experience would provide an important lesson.

In their first match since being confirmed as Premier League champions, ending a 30-year wait for a top-flight title, Liverpool were thrashed 4-0 by the previous season's winners.

City scored through Kevin De Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden and an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain own goal, capitalising on the Reds' poor defending and early profligacy in clinical fashion.

However, Liverpool captain Henderson hoped such a loss could help his side moving forward.

"We are not making any excuses," he told the club's official website. "We are bitterly disappointed and we expect more from ourselves.

"But it can be a lesson for us going forward if we want to improve and keep contending for trophies and being in the run-in for the title next season and other competitions as well.

"We need to keep going, keep improving and keep learning. This is a learning curve, so we need to react the right way in the next game."

Asked what had gone wrong for Jurgen Klopp's side, Henderson replied: "A lot of things but, to be fair, I thought we kept going right until the very end.

"You've got to give credit to City, a fantastic side, and they finished their chances off. We are bitterly disappointed and, after the game, the lads are very disappointed with the result, as we should be.

"On another night, I'd like to think we can finish our chances and it would change the game, but unfortunately it wasn't to be and you've got to give credit to City."

Before thinking about continuing their battle with City next season, though, Liverpool must face Aston Villa on Sunday.

Henderson added: "It's never nice to lose games. We need to show our character and, again, react in the right way.

"The next game is Sunday, so it comes thick and fast, and we need to be ready and keep going. We still want to finish the season off on a high. We've still got six games left, so we want to go out there and perform."

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of winger Leroy Sane from Manchester City.

Sane, 24, has agreed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga champions, who confirmed the transfer on Friday.

The Germany international will initially cost Bayern €49million (£44.5m), rising to €60m (£54.5m), Stats Perform News understands.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "We're very happy to welcome Leroy Sane to FC Bayern. He is an outstanding player who has proven his qualities over the past few years, especially in the national team.

"Our goal is to gather the best German players at FC Bayern and the signing of Leroy emphasises this goal. I would like to congratulate Hasan Salihamidzic on successfully concluding the transfer."

New Bayern Munich winger Leroy Sane has made winning the Champions League his "top priority" in Bavaria.

Sane's long-awaited move from Manchester City to Bayern in his native Germany was confirmed on Friday.

The 24-year-old has signed a five-year contract following a transfer for which, Stats Perform News understands, Bayern have paid an initial €49million (£44.5m), potentially rising to €60m (£54.5m).

Sane was a Bayern target last year before injury ruled him out for much of the 2019-20 campaign, but he is delighted to have finalised the deal, quickly revealing some lofty ambitions.

"FC Bayern is a great club with big goals and these goals suit me as well," Sane said. "I'm looking forward to the new challenge and can't wait to train with the team.

"I know Hansi Flick from the under-21 national team, we had a very good relationship there.

"I want to win as many trophies as possible with FC Bayern, and the Champions League is the top priority."

Sane will not be available for Bayern in this season's Champions League, however, with the Bundesliga champions considered among the favourites ahead of August's eight-team finals.

Meanwhile, Bayern sporting director Hasan Salihamidzic thanked City for "trusting and constructive negotiations", and the Premier League club wished Sane well.

Manager Pep Guardiola, formerly of Bayern, said: "We wish Leroy all the best in this new chapter of his career.

"Leroy has been part of one of the most special periods in this club's history and he leaves with the best wishes of everyone here at Manchester City."

City director of football Txiki Begiristain added: "From arriving as a fledgling young talent four years ago, we are proud of the contribution Leroy has made since joining Manchester City.

"He leaves with many friends and fond memories of his time at the Etihad."

Sane scored 39 goals in 135 appearances for City in all competitions, helping Guardiola's side to win the Premier League and EFL Cup in 2017-18 followed by a domestic treble the following season.

He addressed the City fans on his Twitter page, writing: "Thanks so much for the great time and all the support over the past four years.

"It has been a really intense and successful time which I surely won't forget."

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of winger Leroy Sane from Manchester City.

Sane, 24, has agreed a five-year contract with the Bundesliga champions, who confirmed the transfer on Friday.

The Germany international will initially cost Bayern €49million (£44.5m), rising to €60m (£54.5m), Stats Perform News understands.

Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: "We're very happy to welcome Leroy Sane to FC Bayern. He is an outstanding player who has proven his qualities over the past few years, especially in the national team.

"Our goal is to gather the best German players at FC Bayern and the signing of Leroy emphasises this goal. I would like to congratulate Hasan Salihamidzic on successfully concluding the transfer."

Speaking ahead of the move on Wednesday, Pep Guardiola wished the player all the best at the City boss' "fantastic" former club Bayern.

Sane joining Bayern is a switch that has been mooted since last year, however the German side were said to be unwilling to match City's previous asking price.

He then suffered a serious knee injury in the Community Shield last August and only returned to the pitch last month.

Sane joined City from Schalke in 2016 in a deal reportedly worth an initial £37m (€40m) and went on to show flashes of immense ability during his first campaign.

He elevated his game to the next level in 2017-18 and won the Professional Footballers' Association's (PFA) Young Player of the Year award as Guardiola's side clinched the Premier League title.

Sane helped City to another top-flight crown the following year and scored 16 goals across all competitions, though links with Bayern became commonplace towards the end of 2018-19.

Much of Sane's time on the sidelines through injury coincided with strengthening reports of him desiring a move to Bayern, and on June 19 Guardiola confirmed the club had been informed he would not be signing a contract extension.

As such, Guardiola accepted Sane was either to be sold this year or leave on a free transfer in June 2021.

City have at least avoided the latter scenario, though the fee of up to €60m is significantly less than the £137m (€150m) asking price they are alleged to have set in 2019.

For Bayern, the addition of Sane comes two days after they signed highly rated defender Tanguy Kouassi from Paris Saint-Germain, his contract with the French champions having expired.

Lionel Messi's future is often a topic of discussion.

Messi has an early break clause in his Barcelona contract.

As Barca look to re-sign Messi, the 33-year-old superstar is reportedly ready to walk away next year.

Pep Guardiola warned next Premier League season would be "completely different" as Manchester City bid to reclaim their title.

City were in fine form in a 4-0 thrashing of newly crowned champions Liverpool at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday.

A Kevin De Bruyne penalty and goals from Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden, and an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain own goal, saw City – champions in 2017-18 and 2018-19 – to an impressive victory.

While Guardiola played down the impact on next season, the City manager said 2020-21 would be different.

"I'm happy that we won against a team that is the champion of Europe and England," he told a news conference.

"They were incredibly focused to beat us. I saw their faces, the way they shouted, the way they communicated, the way they wanted it, and that's why.

"They didn't come here just to celebrate, they're going to celebrate. I think they drunk enough beers earlier in the week, but they came here to compete against us, without a doubt.

"That's why for us, to prepare for Arsenal [in the FA Cup semi-finals] and Madrid [in the Champions League last 16] will be so important.

"To know that we can do it, but next season will be completely different. Everyone starts at zero and we have to show, to Liverpool and ourselves, that we can do it, what we have done in previous years, winning a lot of titles in a lot of competitions."

City have a short turnaround, facing Southampton on Sunday.

Jurgen Klopp said beating Manchester City's Premier League record of 100 points in a season was still a target for Liverpool.

City set the record with 100 points during the 2017-18 season, while the title has already been secured by Liverpool this campaign.

However, Klopp's side were beaten 4-0 by Pep Guardiola's City on Thursday, suffering just their second loss of the league season.

Liverpool can reach a maximum of 104 points this campaign and Klopp said the record was a motivation for his team.

"Look, it is, but we cannot force that. To go there, we have to win football games – and we didn't do that [against City]," the Liverpool manager told a news conference.

"So in the first place, we should now make sure we are ready for Aston Villa. The points tally at the end of the season is the result of the results we collect until then.

"I said it to your colleagues, you know these kind of [goalscoring] moments we very often use but [against City] not. Then they have a penalty for the first one, we lose a ball for the second one. Our problems were set-pieces a little bit. The penalty, or the set-piece at least and how it came to that, and two throw-ins, I think it was two throw-ins. That is how City scored.

"With all the quality they have, they scored in these situations – and had a counter-attack. That is how football can be and if you are not perfect, this is not a good place to be. Then you will be punished and that's what happened."

Liverpool's remaining matches this season are against Villa, Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley, Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle United.

Jurgen Klopp insisted Liverpool's 4-0 loss to Manchester City had "nothing to do" with being crowned Premier League champions last week.

In their first appearance after winning a first league title since 1990, Liverpool were well beaten at the Etihad Stadium on Thursday.

A Kevin De Bruyne penalty and goals from Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden, and an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain own goal, saw City to an impressive victory.

Klopp refused to use Liverpool's title success as an excuse, but said City manager Pep Guardiola had an easy way to motivate his side.

"It has nothing to do with last week to be honest. It hurts like defeats hurt," the Liverpool manager told a news conference.

"What I wanted to see was a team who is ready to fight against Man City, who have obviously, I'm not sure if it's the right saying, but a point to prove. It was easy motivation for Pep, let me say it like this.

"The decisive moments City used, we didn't, and it doesn't help, so we had probably more chances than we had in games which we won but we didn't use them, or none of them, so City were there.

"Usually we don't give them that many counter-attacks, with two goals they had a throw-in which is a strength for us usually, tonight it wasn't, and that's how it was then and they have this result."

Liverpool are 20 points clear of City after what was just their second defeat of the Premier League season.

Klopp said any suggestions the gap between the teams was actually that big were wrong.

"If anybody thought before this game that the quality gap between Liverpool and Manchester City is 20 or 23 points, I cannot help these people," he said.

"Football is not about that. Football is about winning games and we did that in a pretty impressive manner.

"I saw, I think, pretty much all of City's games and even the games they lost were good, unbelievable. It is the truth, it is not that they didn't perform or whatever."

Liverpool will try to bounce back when they host lowly Aston Villa on Sunday.

Kevin De Bruyne is the best midfielder in world football, according to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola.

Liverpool's first outing as Premier League champions proved one to forget as Guardiola's dethroned City ran out 4-0 winners at the Etihad Stadium.

De Bruyne slotted home a 25th-minute penalty after Joe Gomez fouled Raheem Sterling, who doubled the advantage against his old employers 10 minutes later.

Phil Foden made it 3-0 on the stroke of half-time and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain turned Sterling's shot into his own net to complete the scoring.

The latter two goals featured typically precise De Bruyne passes in the build-up and the Belgium midfielder underlined his case for being the Premier League's outstanding player against unquestionably the division's outstanding team this season.

"He is a really good player. A really, really good player. He has something unique," Guardiola told reporters afterwards.

"He can run, the vision he has. The personality he shows right now, scoring four penalties in a row when we struggled this season with them.

"Right now in the midfield position is the best.

"Of course he can get better. How? He knows it."

Foden was again worthy of praise within the supporting cast, with the England Under-21 midfielder's assured finish bringing his fourth goal in three Premier League outings since the resumption.

"What we have done is try to protect him," Guardiola said.

"Don’t let him play every single game. Young players have to be careful in the first steps.

"He has an incredible thing that makes me convinced for the next decade he will be an incredible player.

"There is not one day when he has had a bad face for not playing. In training sessions, every single action is positive. Every one – look forward, don't regret.

"He is a huge competitor, he is a guy who scores incredible goals, so fast, defensively so strong.

"It's a reality that he played at Old Trafford, he played here. Against incredibly top teams he was there, always playing at a high level.

"I don't want to say anything wrong, but Gareth Southgate has an incredible talent for the national team in his hands. I saw many players in my life, training with incredible players and Phil will be one of them."

Foden's fellow academy graduate Eric Garcia returned to action after suffering a concussion in the 3-0 win against Arsenal and recovered well from a shaky start at centre-back, after Mohamed Salah hit the post during a deceptively strong Liverpool start.

"He played against Salah and [Sadio] Mane. He's 19, he had a kick against Arsenal, was training for three or four days after 10 days out and he was awesome," Guardiola added.

"He doesn't make mistakes. He is always focused, he guides the line, he knows what he has to do.

"As a club, we are so proud to have Phil and Eric. We can count on them, without a doubt."

A tetchy Jurgen Klopp insisted newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool approached Thursday's clash with Manchester City with the right attitude.

Liverpool were playing their first game since City's loss to Chelsea ended their 30-year wait for the top-flight title but were second best throughout in a 4-0 defeat to the team they have deposed as champions.

Kevin De Bruyne's penalty set the tone and Raheem Sterling and Phil Foden made it 3-0 before half-time, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's own goal rounding off a miserable evening after a week to celebrate.

Reds manager Klopp was clearly in an irritated mood during a post-match interview with Sky Sports but was adamant he had no qualms about the desire of his team.

"I saw a brilliant attitude, I saw boys who were fighting with everything we have. [It's not that] we didn't behave like somebody who became champion a week ago, [that] it's not important, so that was awkward," said Klopp, whose side lost for just the second time in the Premier League this season. 

"We lacked fluidity and in some situations, 50-50s, they were just quicker than us in mind, that's true as well, that's what they use. 

"Then the pitch becomes big immediately. The first goal we left Joe [Gomez] it felt like five minutes alone in a challenge with Sterling and there must be a second player. 

"I think before the second goal we lose the ball, the third goal could have been [dealt with better] which makes no sense, but it can happen against City that you can have massive problems. 

"They used their chances, not all but a lot, and we didn't. So, City were 100 per cent deserving today, but a 5-3 or something like that would have been possible as well. It doesn't make the things better, but now it's 4-0, we have to take that and that's it."

With Liverpool's focus perhaps not as high as it normally would be against City, Klopp was pressed on if perspective must be given to the result.

The usually amiable German again defended his team, though, and said the result was more down to City's own vast quality.

"If you wanna lead this story in the direction that we were not focused on that game then do it, that's the second time I spoke about attitude, I like my team how they set up, I said that and I thought it's clear," he added. 

"If you go again with that, I think we proved that point and we proved as well that City is an unbelievable team. 

"Isn't it nice in this league that another team can be champion even when City is around and can play this kind of football, isn't that a surprise as well?

"City is outstanding, I said that, I have to give them credit. By the way I do that always because they are incredible.

"I saw City's season and I didn't see a bad game, honestly even when they lost they still played really good football."

Raheem Sterling says Manchester City laid down a marker for next season with their thumping 4-0 win over newly crowned Premier League champions Liverpool on Thursday.

Pep Guardiola's side made light work of the lacklustre Reds, who were playing for the first time since their first top-flight title in 30 years was confirmed last week.

Kevin De Bruyne got them on their way from the penalty spot after Sterling had been hauled down by Joe Gomez, before the England international, Phil Foden and an Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain own goal sealed the resounding victory.

"They [Liverpool] have been brilliant all year," Sterling told Sky Sports. "We knew we had to come out strong because we wanted to have a good game against them.

"We had a test against the current champions and wanted to make a point. We did brilliantly. Next season started today, and we did well."

Foden was once again instrumental to everything positive about City's display, with Sterling impressed by the 20-year-old's maturity.

"This is a team that is evolving and changing," he added. "You can see the maturity Phil is playing with.

"He's 20 and playing like he's been in the first team for years. It's a credit to him. Every opportunity he gets, he does brilliantly."
