According to coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the pressure from the wings of Man Utd made Man City wrong in the match in the Premier League on the evening of March 8.
“There are times when we put pressure and push them home. We try to play face-to-face with two wingers and three strikers above,” he told Man Utd’s website. “In fact, with that game we only had three defenders, but in return, when we created pressure, we made City wrong.”
Goals from Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay helped Man Utd defeat their rivals in the city 2-0, in the 29th Premier League. Even, if you take better opportunities, Solskjaer teachers and students can win.
“I can’t explain every aspect of the game. But there are times, you need to keep the ball and defend,” Solskjaer said. “I will not complain about that. Anthony Martial and Bruno Fernandes worked so well together at the opening table, but I was not surprised. Bruno was that kind of player. Of course, we practiced the free-kick. I have seen them score like that on the training ground. “
Thanks to this victory, Man Utd continue to stand fifth with three points less than the team immediately above it is Chelsea. They are therefore full of opportunities to compete in the Top 4, because the season has nine rounds left. “We will improve further and every player also needs to improve,” the Norwegian military leader stressed.
Yesterday was the third time Man Utd defeated Man City this season, thereby becoming the third team to win both matches against Pep Guardiola’s team in a league season. When asked if he could compete with top leaders like Guardiola or Jurgen Klopp, Solskjaer replied: “I didn’t beat Guardiola three times, but the new players are the ones who do it. I believe in my ability. I will help the club to improve as much as possible. “
