OLE HAILS ‘BRILLIANT’ WIN
We said how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sounded confident before the game… Well there’s no shame in the Norwegian being delighted to beat Liverpool this evening.
He told BBC: “Brilliant – you know when you go a goal, down the reaction of everyone was really good.
“We played some really good stuff, good goals, we have to defend well against them and we managed to react well and of course towards the end there were some moments but we kept them away.
“Great goal, good free kick. When you leave him out like I did today, he stayed about 45 minutes after training yesterday shooting free kicks so I was pretty confident he could score one if he got the chance.
“He’s never happy with me when I tell him to go inside after training when he’s playing the next day so he got some practice yesterday.
“Marcus [Rashford] has played up front, down the right and left and we felt if we could switch the ball early today we could attack them because Liverpool defend on the front foot so we have to be quick on the ball, we did that well.”
