OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER has warned his players to not dare take their foot off the pedal.
It is six wins out six for Solskjaer with Manchester United overcoming their biggest test so far of under the new boss with a 1-0 win away to Spurs last Sunday.
But it is how his players now lift themselves for an expected home win against Brighton which Solskjaer believes will tell himself more about this team.
Solskjaer said: “You cannot be too confident, it’s complacency, it’s the other side of it, I want players to be confident but not complacent and not take their foot off the pedal because that’s a big difference for me.
“Everyone said about Tottenham being the test.
“I don’t think that’s a test in attitude, the players are going to be up for that game.
“I’m looking for a reaction in a home game against a team you should dominate and be better than.
“These are the points that will get you up the table.
“As I’ve said before you go into every single game as a Manchester United coach , as a player or manager thinking you’ll win the next one, that’s just the nature of this club.
“We’ve had six good games but the next one is the most important one.”

Those six wins for Solskjaer has pushed United to within six points of the top four and into the next round of the FA Cup.
The 45-year-old Norwegian has put a smile back on the face of the club.
He is enjoying his time back in Manchester away from the club too.
Unlike former boss Jose Mourinho he does not intend to make the Lowry Hotel his permanent base while he is here even if it is just until May.
Mourinho stayed there for two-and-a-half years.
But Solskjaer is already looking for his own place as he reconnects with his second home.
Solskjaer said: “I love it to be fair, and I have to say I look forward to getting up in the morning to start work again, I always do in football
“I love working with people, trying to improve people.
“I’m still in the hotel but I’ve found a place.
“I’ve been driving around a bit and finding my bearings, I’ve met mates so it’s not like I’m on my own.”
