Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Ready For Another Arsenal Test

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is confident Manchester United’s players are refocused and ready to go again at Arsenal on the back of their stunning Champions League win at Paris Saint-Germain.

Talk has turned to when, rather than if, the 46-year-old gets the job on a permanent basis after continuing his extraordinary audition as caretaker manager at the Parc des Prince

Now comes a return to Premier League action and a chance to make a mark in the top-four race

“No problem whatsoever,” Solskjaer said of the squad’s focus.

“We have gone through to the quarter-finals, which is what we sometimes expect of Man United.

“But it was the way it happened and the celebrations at the end, it just happens when you win a game like we did.

“But then again, no problem – we’ve got Arsenal, a fantastic game to get yourself ready again.”

“It’s the same decisions you always have when you go into a game,” Solskjaer said when that win in north London was brought up.

“One, you’ve got to consider their approach, which system do you think they will play, which is impossible to predict because they change a lot.

“But then you need to look at who is fit and how we want to approach the game as well.

“It might be different kind of systems or is it a counter-attacking game you want – it’s all sorts.

“But now of course the fitness issue plays in more than ever because we’ve got players coming back, players who put a proper shift in.

“It was one of the hardest nights we’ve had physically – probably this one (PSG) and the Arsenal cup game are the two hardest games we’ve had.

“It was great to have fresh legs – Scott (McTominay), Fred – they do cover the ground so much so it’s something we have to consider.”
