"We can’t hide the fact we’ve dropped off our form a bit," Solskjaer added. "We dropped points against Everton, Sheffield United, West Brom, points that we feel we deserved more and we should have got more. "Tonight [against Sociedad] was about finding ourselves and getting the X factor back in, the brightness and the focus so Newcastle will be a very important game for us definitely. "I don’t think anyone would say they’re not going to go for it. We’re going to go for a win in every single game we play, of course we are. But, whatever other teams do, City, Liverpool, Leicester, Chelsea, Tottenham, whoever, West Brom, we can’t control. We just have to control ourselves.

"We are in the position we are, we’re second and, of course, your ambition then is to not end any lower than that. We’re going to have to get a good run together if we’re going to put pressure on City and that should start on Sunday, of course." Full confirmed United squad: David de Gea, Dean Henderson, Lee Grant, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire, Axel Tuanzebe, Victor Lindelof, Eric Bailly, Luke Shaw, Alex Telles, Brandon Williams, Fred, Nemanja Matic, Shola Shoretire, Bruno Fernandes, Juan Mata, Amad, Daniel James, Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Mason Greenwood
