Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed Manchester United’s players have complained that the colour of the Old Trafford seats may have contributed to their indifferent home form this season. 


United extended their unbeaten away run in the Premier League to 23 games last weekend, coming from behind to earn a deserved 3-1 victory over Tottenham which solidified their position behind runaway leaders Manchester City in the table. 


Regardless of their Europa League fate, United are certain to return to the continent’s elite club competition next season and their form on the road has been central to their progression.


United have recovered from picking up just one point from their opening four home Premier League games this term on their own patch and haven’t been beaten since a shock 2-1 defeat to Championship-bound Sheffield United at the end of January. 


Solskjaer’s side have drawn their last two European fixtures at Old Trafford, however, against Milan and Real Sociedad, and the Norwegian claimed the club have looked into the suggestion that a colour clash could have been affecting the decision making of his players.

He said: ‘You’ll see a change now the banners around the place. It is not red anymore, we have looked into this. 


‘It shouldn’t be any reason really. But, some of the players have mentioned that split second decision, red shirts on red seats, we have tried to change that along with anti-racism campaign. That was important it is not red anymore.’ 


After a convincing 2-0 away win against Granada last week, meanwhile, United need not be flawless tomorrow evening with one foot already in the semi finals of a competition Solskjaer will hope can provide him with the first trophy of his reign.


Solskajer, however, is taking nothing for granted and guarded against complacency, saying ‘We have got a great foundation, but we have to win. They will give everything they have got. Momentum is big in football. 


‘It is a quarter-final in Europe, they need to score goals. We have seen them against Barcelona, Real Madrid how dangerous they can be. We have to play a good game and not give them those opportunities.’
