Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made a request for new signings to help his team after a disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Burnley in the Premier League last night.

"We are working to improve and get players in, and hopefully we can get something over the line. I think everybody can see these players are being stretched, they are stretched, and I've got absolutely no complaints on any of them because they give absolutely everything they've got," the United boss said.

Three key players - midfielders Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay and top scoring striker Marcus Rashford - are out with long-term injuries, and having off-loaded several players in the summer, Solskjaer's options are limited.

"This is our second defeat at home and first since August. I thought we had turned that corner," Solskjaer added.

Burnley enjoyed what was almost a routine victory and yet it was their first at Old Trafford since 1962.

"For me the most important thing is that we have to perform on the pitch and this wasn’t good enough for a Manchester United team," said Solskjaer.
