Europa League

Solsjkær's Post Match Reactions and who to Blame for Manchester United lose at King Power Stadium


Solskjaer on conceding the first goal: "We want to build from the back and want the players to be confident - sometimes it doesn't work and that's one time it didn't."

"We've got the Europa League and Premier League to concentrate on - yes we would've liked to go to Wembley but now all the focus is on the games we do have. It won't be easy but we want to keep going and get as far as possible in the Europa as well."


Talkung on changing the line-up: "I would've done the same again, the changes were necessary to do. We knew Paul [Pogba] wouldn't last more than an hour and I don't think I would do anything differently. What goes on behind the scenes isn't always known."

Solskjaer: "We've got too many players that have played too many games and too many that haven't really had much football, Martial, Donny Van de Beek, Pogba and others are trying to get in who haven't had enough football. We didn't have enough against a tough team."

"We didn't have the spark tonight - but it's understandable. This team have been fantastic in the last three or four months. We played every three days and been on a great run. It just caught up with us, all the games and travels."

"We tried to get on the front foot and start well because sometimes you can get that adrenaline boost and confidence if you get a goal and that can carry you over the line."

"Thursday night in Milan was a big night and took a lot of out of us physically. We didn't have the extra zip, authority and confidence today."

"We're in a good position in the league and we want to keep improving, of course Leicester are just behind us so it won't be easy but we want to keep going and get as far as possible in the Europa as well."

"We've got the Europa League and Premier League to concentrate on - yes we would've liked to go to Wembley but now all the focus is on the games we do have."
