The Norwegian coach said, “I have to stop Scott from doing that sometimes - he is an attacking midfielder by nature. But when he sees space in front of him, why stop him? But he's great at shielding his back four.” The former Manchester United star then added, “We've been criticized for our starts but the boys were prepared.”
Solskjaer said, “We've approached the game really well. we've looked at videos and looked at ways to exploit them but also ways to stop them from hurting you. It was a great start.” He then also added, “It's 13 games into the season - we're a work in progress. We're getting better, we're getting fitter and stronger but there are still a few details to nail, and let's talk about the title later on.”
