Manchester United have named their team to face Everton this evening.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted the camp were in good spirits following the comprehensive win over Southampton in midweek.
“It’s about creating good habits and it doesn’t really matter if it’s 0-0, 5-0 or 0-1, you just have to try to do the right things and I’ve got to say they kept going and kept working and kept trying the right things,” he said. “We scored a few goals towards the end and that’s because we worked hard in the whole game.”
Solskjaer also spoke of tonight’s opponents.
“Very good side. They’ve won the last four away games so they’ve been doing really well away from home and we need to turn up. We’ve done brilliantly against them in the two away games we’ve had this season – 3-1 and 2-0. I think we showed resilience and quality on the counterattack and patience and creativity when we had the ball, so we’ve had some good performances. But this is a new game and we really need to up our game again to get three points.”
Today is the anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster and Solskjaer also spoke about the significance of the day.
“Yes of course. The Busby Babes are such an important part of the spirit of the club and the history of the club. It’s not been very often that we’ve had a game on the exact date, this is only the fourth time [in Premier League history]. Hopefully we can put in a good performance worthy of Man United and our history and [that can be] a fitting tribute to them. We’ve got loads of Academy players in the squad, I could probably name five, six or seven who will play today.”
