Lee Dixon believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his stars are ‘learning the Manchester United way’ as expectations mount over a Premier League title charge this season.
The Red Devils were not in the scintillating form that saw them put six past Leeds United in their last home game, but managed to clinch all three points in a confidence-boosting result.

United sealed a last-gasp win over Wolves to move within two points of Liverpool on Tuesday
United were famed for their ability to steal victories at the death under Sir Alex Ferguson and Solskjaer, who played under the Old Trafford icon, is hoping to reinstall that quality in his side.
And Dixon believes that United are developing towards that mould well, before opining on the state of the title race heading into the New Year.
‘The confidence is there for all to see, the way they have won the game late on,’ the Arsenal legend told Amazon Prime.

And Arsenal legend Dixon believes Solskjaer is learning as a coach as the title race hots up
‘He is learning as a coach, learning the Man Utd way, his players are learning off him as well. There are so many teams clustered together so if you are in the top seven or eight you are in the race.
‘If Liverpool can maintain their drive I don’t see anyone catching them, but it could go any way.’
Meanwhile, former United defender Phil Neville added that United have the strength in depth to sustain a title challenge. Liverpool have been rocked by a number of injuries this season but United have not endured such misfortune.
‘The squad, if you look at the bench, shows they have the depth to maintain a title challenge with the amount of games they have got,’ he said.
‘I don’t see any player out there who are available that could come in and improve them [in January].’
