Solskjaer pleased with the dry net29-12-2019
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was very pleased with the 2-0 win over Burnley and the dry net in particular. The last match without a goal by the Red Devils was against Leicester in September. That is why the mentor praised his defenders and goalkeeper David De Gea.
In the first half, we laid the groundwork so we could get out and defend ourselves in the second half. And in defense we were brilliant. Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelloff were brilliant against two great strikers like Chris Wood and Ashley Barnes. No central defender would want to stand against them. The final defenders were also very, very aggressive in stopping the centering, and when there were any, Harry and Victor were incredible. Harry in particular had a few key interventions at the end. At 1:0 we defended well and managed to score a second goal at the end. Maybe he should have dropped earlier, but the important thing was that we were able to get him in. David De Gea is happy with the dry net. We needed it because we had not achieved such a thing since September. This was important for David, Harry and Vic. We know we can`t always play fantastic football and score four to five goals. We`ve been tagging a lot lately, but we`re also getting a lot of hits. When you don`t get a goal, then your chances of winning are higher, Solskjaer thinks.
The specialist commented on the goals in front of the team, as well as the upcoming derby with Arsenal.
Our goal is the top 4 and we are not far from it. Last season was also close, but in the end we were unable to achieve what we wanted. Now the boys have responded well after losing to Watford and I am pleased with them. In football, you have to earn the right to win every game. We now have a match with Arsenal, which is always difficult. We`ve been able to handle all that Burnley has to offer, but now Arsenal will offer us completely different challenges to think about. We will be ready for them, the Norwegian guarantees.
