What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Paul Pogba after missed penalty vs Southampton

What Ole Gunnar Solskjaer told Paul Pogba after missed penalty vs Southampton

As Romelu Lukaku sprinted away to celebrate his 88th-minute winning goal, surely any lingering doubt over the identity of the Manchester United manager for the 2019-20 season was carried away with him.

Solskjaer has overseen an incredible change at United over the last few months, but the Norwegian has been unable to alter the form of Sanchez, who has struggled badly since a 2018 move from Arsenal. Indeed, the symbolism of this...

Ander Herrera, Nemanja Matic, Jesse Lingard, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial all missed the win over Southampton while Pogba is already ruled out against PSG because of suspension.

"This was the flawless team to beat today and we knew before the game it was like a final", said Andone.

Frontman Sanchez suffered knee ligament damage in Saturday's 3-2 home win over Southampton and is facing several weeks out.

After watching De Bruyne limp off in first-half stoppage time, Guardiola then saw Stones leave the field minutes after the restart on his return after three games out with a groin problem.

The Chile worldwide picked up an injury at the start of the second half at Old Trafford to force Solskjaer to substitute the club's best-paid player.


Next up in the top flight is a trip to fellow top-four chasing Arsenal, who United won 3-1 against in the FA Cup fourth round back in January.

"It's fantastic. You feel a lot of emotions and I'm very happy and hopefully there will be many more to come".

United appeared to be heading towards a disappointing home draw in the closing moments, when substitute Fred exchanged passes with Luke Shaw and found the in-form Lukaku on the edge of the area. I've got every faith if we defend well and if we create the chances that I know we can do, we can win the game.

"But what for me is the most important thing is next time we have a penalty he goes again".

Shearer said on the BBC: "What a job Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is doing". Credit was still due to the striker for knowing where the goal was and shooting nearly immediately, and though Gunn was beaten for a third time, he did manage to keep out Pogba's stoppage-time penalty, awarded after Armstrong had fouled Rashford.

"I will not deny to you that some factors had an influence in that the last period was not a good one".

With Paul Pogba suspended for the Paris Saint-Germain tie in the Champions League on Wednesday, there could be further opportunities for Andreas, who is pleased to have the trust of Solskjaer.
