"We spoke at half-time: get more urgency, get the ball in the box, and the strength of them [the fans] will suck the ball in".

Manchester United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said Alexis Sanchez may have suffered knee ligament damage in the 3-2 win over Southampton at Old Trafford.

"He's gone through the academy, we know what he's capable of, he's got loads of energy, drive".

Manchester United are using Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as the face of their season ticket sales pitch for 2019-20 even though he might not be their manager. "Young kids, when they get criticism, there is nothing better than seeing them grab their chance".

After struggling to fill the boots of the inured Ander Herrera in the first half with any real quality in the first half, Pereira made up for lost time in the second half as he engineered United's fightback.

While United remain unbeaten in the league under Solskjaer, Saints are worryingly close to the trap door after an afternoon when several decisions went against Ralph Hasenhuttl's side.

"In the current squad, because of the way they try to organise, they communicate with team-mates, I think we only have two who are quite good at that", Robson told Sport Witness.

"You see the way he celebrated, and we see it every day in training, he practices all the time and that's why he scores goals". "Very disappointed for us".
