Manchester United have named their team to face Arsenal.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be hoping for a positive response from the midweek setback when his team lost at home at lowly Sheffield United.
“You never want to lose a game to learn from it, you want to learn from the games you win,” Ole told the press in his pre-match press conference. “We’ve been terrific, we’ve been consistent, but it’s that kind of season.
“We didn’t expect to go through unbeaten since 1 November, of course we didn’t. But we wanted to and we still want to start a new run.
“We’ve always bounced back after defeats before. This season, we’ve done remarkably well after most of the defeats. There was one, we lost to Arsenal and then to Basaksehir just after. But apart from that we’ve always bounced back with a good performance.
“I expect everyone to perform well and let’s hope the result comes thereafter. You can never control the result.”
Meanwhile, Luke Shaw – who was on the bench on Wednesday but returns today – told ManUtd.com that he feels he is playing his best football since signing in 2014.
“Yeah maybe, because I had a lot of ups and downs,” he admitted. “There were times when I was finally getting into a good stage where I felt good but I feel like I’ve been so unfortunate with the injuries I’ve picked up along the way. That’s in the past though and hopefully that’s behind me and I can just get back to playing football and enjoying it and trying to help the team as much as possible.”
“I feel like I’ve been here for a long time now so I do feel like one of the older ones,” he added. “Sometimes even the lads ask how old I am because everyone thinks I’m older! Of course I’ve still got a long way to go, but I think I’ve matured not just in football, but outside of football as well. Hopefully I can continue pushing along because I can definitely still improve and get better.”
