Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled outthe mentality of his Manchester United side as they pulled off another comeback victoryin the Premier League on Saturday.
It is the fifth consecutive Premier League away game where Solskjaer’s side have had to mount a comeback this season and the United manager was pleased with the mindset of his players.
“We have done this too many times coming back from 1-0 down for it to be a coincidence,” Solskjaer said.
“To have this character and the mentality is one of the biggest things that I take from these away games. They always believe in themselves, we trust ourselves, there’s no shouting and screaming, we believe in our teammates and believe in ourselves.”
While the result and performance in the last 20 minutes were impressive, United were dreadful in the first half and were lucky to only have a one-goal deficit at the break.
Bruno Fernandes, who had been rested with a foot knock, and Marcus Rashford were brought off the bench for the second half and had a transformative effect on the side.
“I think this season is going to be such a long and hard one and when players have got niggly injuries, he Fernandeshas been kicked so many times these last few weeks and he had a sore foot so I didn’t want to use him from the start,” Solskjaer explained.
“We’ve got a big game on Tuesday we have a good squad with loads of quality and talent out there so we decided to go with the starting XI that we did.
