    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer exclusive club media interview before Sheffield United game

    The strength of the squad showed on Friday. The subs made a difference – Nemanja, Mason and Paul. Does that give you some food for thought, when you think about selection, with games every three or four days?

    “Yeah. I’ve got a strong squad. We have put two good XIs out in internal matches, in-house matches, and still players are not able to get onto the pitch. So the squad is strong, and when the game gets towards the last 15-20 minutes, it opens up and it stretches. Then you need fresh legs to make a difference, and we certainly had players who made an impact when they came on against Spurs.”

     

    I thought it was noticeable that everyone kept going for basically 95 minutes on Friday. You must be happy with the fitness, because it did look as if there was only going to be one team ultimately that was going to win on Friday?

    “I thought we had the momentum towards the end, yes, definitely. As I said, the game opened up a bit as well, and as a coach, sometimes, you want it tighter at the back. But we had to go for the win, and it went a little bit end-to-end, but we’ve got players with pace, with power, and they used the space well. Fitness-wise, the boys have been working so hard over obviously the last three or four weeks, but over the period that we were not seeing each other every day as well. So I’m very happy with what they’ve done.”
