Manchester United have been known for their impressive form away from home and have traditionally done well at St Mary’s – not losing at the ground since November 2003. 

The Red Devils will now look to break the record set by Arsenal when they face Wolves in the Premier League next week. 

Nevertheless, United must use their away momentum to establish dominance at Old Trafford after a dismal home record last season.

The Red Devils won less than half of their Old Trafford fixtures in the Premier League last season and must improve on such a statistic to be in with a chance of challenging for the title. 

Solskjaer said that the reason for his side’s poor form at home was due to the lack of fans at the ground last term. 

The Norwegian manager he said the absence of their supporters made it hard to differentiate between home and away games. 

He believes United will be able to turn their home turf into a fortress once again this season.
