Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was full of praise for his squad after their emphatic win over RB Leipzig.
“It was a case of using the squad. We had to rest a few players and the ones who came in did brilliant.
“We had to work hard for this, they really made us work hard off the ball and on the ball as well because they counter pressed. The intensity of their play was incredible
“After 2-0 of course they open up, go for goals and the spaces opened up for our fresh legs out there.
“It’s very good to know for the players that we have a strong squad to pick from. We are very happy with the start. We have played against two very good teams, two difficult games, and we have performed fantastic. We showed our own quality and if we focus on the next job and the next job and the next job who knows how far they are going to go. We go to Istanbul next week wanting three points there as well.”
What the managers said…
More from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “Marcus Rashford came on and did well but the groundwork was there from the team, that’s what you want from the subs. What a shift they put in. Leipzig are a high press, the intensity, so we had to dig deep.
“We had to rest a few because the season is relentless, so we used the squad. This group is coming together. The more quality and spirit you have, the more you get the performance.
“We made some changes today because of Sunday as you have to be ready for that. In the league you have a game less than other teams as well. We need to pick up points.”
RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann: “It was a bit crazy because after they scored the first goal, we did well. The final 20 minutes were very bad.”
On whether the first goal was offside: “We can defend it better, that’s the more important topic for me as the manager. You can follow the deep run and then normally it’s no trouble.”
