Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer woke up feeling dangerous yesterday as he fired shots at Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta winning trophies but underperforming in the Premier League.

The Norwegian is yet to win a trophy at Old Trafford. He has suffered four losses in semi-finals, and despite doing reasonably well in the Premier League this season, he is under pressure to deliver silverware.

Solskjaer was quizzed about his ambitions to win something this season and the United boss seemed to aim a subtle dig at Arteta to cover up the fact that he is trophyless in over two years at the helm at Manchester United.

He said, as per Manchester Evening News: “We’re 12 points ahead of what we were at the same time in the league last season.

“Of course, we’re all aiming to win trophies at this club. But, as we’ve said, sometimes a trophy can hide the other fact of what’s happening at the club. It’s in the league position you see if you’re progressing, really.”

Arsenal fans are not happy

Ole’s really feeling the pressure, isn’t he?

Arteta, in his first job as a manager, has won more trophies than Solskjaer in much less time. The United boss has spent almost £300 million since taking over as well, and he has achieved close to nothing in that period – apart from maybe winning the most questionable penalties in the league.

The Arsenal boss dominates Solskjaer in head-to-heads too.

The Norwegian’s side are yet to score a goal against Arteta’s army in the three times they’ve faced us.

It is clear as day who the better manager is and that might just be why Ole is feeling a little insecure ahead of what is looking like another season without a trophy for him.

Here’s how a few Arsenal fans reacted to his dig
