Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has called for time to transform Manchester United’s fortunes after defeat at Newcastle left him with a “big, uphill challenge” of finishing in the top four.

United succumbed to a second-half strike from Premier League debutant Matty Longstaff at St. James’ Park as their winless away record stretched to a dismal 11 games.

A third defeat of the season has left United 12th in the table with just eight points from their opening eight games – their worst start to a season in 30 years – and Solskjaer fearing objectives for the campaign may already be out of reach.

“We’ve given ourselves a big, big uphill challenge to get among the top four but it’s tight and we need to get a run together,” he told Sky Sports.

“It will take but long it will have to take. It’s a journey we’ve started on and the culture is getting there. I can’t give you any time but we’re getting there.

“We’ve come together and discussed the direction we’re going. If you only work on sunny days, you’ll never get to your destination. We’ll have these days, but we know where we want to get to.”
