Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Manchester United will not change their approach against Granada
The Red Devils go into a strong position after winning 2-0 away yesterday night. Marcus Rashford opened the scoring in the first half before a Bruno Fernandes penalty in the dying embers put us in a strong position.
United, however, did not have all the things go their way. The key trio of Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw and Scott McTominay all picked up yellow cards, ruling them out of the return fixture.
Ole admits that the night was far from perfect. While the scoreline works in our favour, the five yellow cards picked up on the night stole the sheen off the final result.
“It’s not a perfect night, of course, we get three yellow cards and three suspensions for the next game, but a 2-0 result is a very good result.”
Not every team can go to Spain and come away with a positive result. It was evident just earlier this week when Liverpool fell to a weak Real Madrid side. Having dispatched Real Sociedad in the previous round, the Red Devils suffer from no Iberian jynx.
“Of course we know how difficult it is coming to Spain to get these kinds of results, we have to play well to get them and [I’m] very happy with the result.”
Solskjaer has demanded more of the same in the return leg. With home comfort beckoning, we will have no other option but to get the job done.
“We cannot have any other approach than go forward and try to create chances and score goals, Especially at home, Old Trafford, we feel good at home of course.”
