Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Manchester United bobbing back: “We expected to have a decent outcome and a nice sentiment today since we were low after the Everton game. It’s difficult to take yet they were truly engaged and did the work”
It took until the seventh moment of extra-an ideal opportunity for Scott McTominay to fire United ahead as they edged a 1-0 win to arrive at the FA Cup quarter-finals, four days after they had been held to a very late 3-3 draw by Everton in the Premier League at Old Trafford.
That left them five focuses off the highest point of the group, however they are as yet in the chase for flatware and two games from a first FA Cup last under Solskjaer.
He disclosed to BBC Sport that is the thing that the club ought to expect, in the midst of its longest desolate run without a prize since the 1980s.
“I felt we ruled. I thought we were in finished control of the primary half,” he said. “In the subsequent half, it turned out to be to a greater degree a game. At the point when it’s just 1-0 and we are inefficient, anything can happen to us – we realized that from the last game [Everton]. It’s just about polishing the game off yet we’re through. We’re in the cap and that is the thing that we needed.
“I think we got around 15 to 17 shots eventually however we should be more clinical. We should’ve polished the game off before and completed in an hour and a half however now and then it doesn’t occur.
“We expected to have a decent outcome and a nice sentiment today since we were low after the Everton game. It’s difficult to take yet they were truly engaged and did the work.
