Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has “come too far to give up”

despite overseeing Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing by Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Mohamed Salah claimed a hat-trick while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also scored in the Reds’ dominant win.

Solskjaer said the loss is his “darkest day” as manager but will carry on.

“I have strive hard before getting to this step. I am not built that way,” he told BBC Radio 5 live.

“The feeling we have had is we were getting where we wanted to be but in the last few weeks results haven’t come and

we have hit a brick wall. We have conceded too many easy goals and that is a concern.

“I am still thinking about tomorrow’s work, we are all low. This is the lowest I have been but I accept the responsibility,

that is mine and mine going forward.”

The victory was Liverpool’s biggest win at Old Trafford in their history and set a number of unwanted landmarks

as far as Manchester United are concerned.

It was their biggest loss in this fixture since October 1895, when Liverpool beat them 7-1 at Anfield,

and was the first time they have lost by a margin of five or more goals at Old Trafford without scoring

themselves since 1955 at that time.

Their team conceded only once more after the break but also had Paul Pogba sent off just 15 minutes after he had come on as a substitute.

The results means Manchester United are seventh in the Premier League, seven points behind Liverpool who are second.

“I do believe in myself, I do believe I am getting close to what I want with the club,” added Solskjaer, who took over as manager in 2018.
