Gunnar Solskjaer called on his sick Manchester United stars to learn from one of their most famous fans and ignore Liverpool’s knockout blow.

World heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has stepped off the canvas several times during his undefeated career and has also made a number of trips to Old Trafford to support the Red Devils during his downtime.

Saturday’s trip to Spurs pits Solskjaer against another boss under pressure at Nuno Espirito Santo, and the Norwegian wants to see his players learn from their 5-0 loss and stay calm.

He told reporters: “Of course you have to put your hands up – this performance is not acceptable. And you have to see why it happened the way it was.

“I use the analogy that we felt like we were a boxer, we were drunk on punch, we were knocked down in the first round. We had a chance, we conceded a goal, and we wanted fixed the problem and we went a little too open and frantic against a good team.

“You see Tyson Fury when he’s knocked down a few times, it’s remarkable how calm and composed he is on the floor, counts to six, seven, eight, and then he gets up and is ready to go.

“Maybe we got up too early and tried to sort it out. Spirits have to be better, but of course we also had to look at different things, and of course you have to be frank and honest, the communication must be direct. “

Paul Pogba is suspended for the game as United wait to see if Raphael Varane will be fit to come back and strengthen the defense.
