​Interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that ​Manchester United will not use naive, gung-ho tactics against ​Tottenham Hotspur in the ​Premier League despite the desire to attack. 

The Red Devils have scored 16 goals in the five games that Solskjaer has taken charge of since Jose Mourinho was sacked. 

United, however, face their toughest test so far in the form of Tottenham and they would need to adapt to how Spurs play and silence Wembley stadium. 

Speaking to Soccer AM, as per ​Sky Sports News, he said, “When you play against a good team you have got to defend. You have to earn the right to win a game of football. We’re not going to go gung-ho and be naïve but Manchester United is about attacking football.”

“We’ve got to go there and attack the game, we have to win to stand a chance of passing them in the league. We go there to take three points. Walking out at Wembley with a Manchester United shirt on, that brings the best out in quite a few players. Hopefully we can see that.”

The Norwegian also believes the Red Devils have what it takes to finish in the ​Champions League positions, despite them trailing currently fourth-placed ​Chelsea by nine points. 

Talking about the same, “They know they are good players, they are playing for Manchester United. If we all stick together and do our best every day then we might just surprise a few with the way we could end the season,” he concluded.
