It was nearly 20 years ago that John O'Shea enjoyed a flawless view of the defining moment of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Manchester United career. It was about seeing what you can do to go back to the way we used to play, the way Man United are supposed to play, exciting football. "I don't look at these games and think "well, we can't win that" - I think we can win every single game".
The Norwegian has won all four of his first four fixtures as United caretaker boss and the club will consider appointing him on a permanent basis if they can't land first choice Mauricio Pochettino. "We will have to be careful with their strong points or we are dead before we start the game".
"Unfortunately, we lost the game but we were very close to getting a draw, so it's disappointing".
"Of course I won't, I don't want to", he said. "You need that fitness work because towards the end of March and April we'll need legs and I think we've got them".
United are due to fly to Dubai after the game for a warm weather training camp, ahead of the trip to Tottenham on January 13, and Solskjaer was warned his squad to expect four days of hard work.
Both Rashford and Lukaku revealed they are relishing the input of Solskjaer, who has spoken about his desire to work with the pair.
The 20-year old was involved in the clubs preseason tour this season and has more recently been called up to first team training by Solskjaer.
United will now move on to much tougher challenges, starting with the Premier League visit to Tottenham a week on Sunday. "The more chances you create, the more times you get the ball into the final third". "I respect a lot what the last manager did for us".
"When you pay big money for players, normally you are talking about offensive players who make the difference".
Indeed, imagine if Manchester United had not had a player sent off against them in a Premier League match since January 2014...
It is believed that Solskjaer will also ask his players to spend more time with each other at the team hotel before away games. I respect him and, for Portuguese coaches, it's important everything he achieved, but Manchester United decided differently.
"I thought the response was fantastic in the second half".
