Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explains his Manchester United starting XI against Milan at San Siro. ‘We know we have to score, which is a good position to be in.’
The first leg of the Europa League Round of 16 ended 1-1 at Old Trafford, with Simon Kjaer cancelling out an Amad Diallo header.
This is the same XI that allowed Manchester United to beat West Ham United at the weekend.
“We felt the game was a good game, good preparation, we looked at the other game against Milan and we felt these changes might make a difference for us tonight,” Solskjaer told MUTV.
“You can sense the atmosphere, those players give us the extra experience but the others have felt the boost from those coming in.”
Although Paul Pogba, Donny van de Beek and David de Gea are back in the squad, they are all initially on the bench.
“We might probably see both Donny and Paul and hopefully we don’t have to put David on,” continued the manager.
“We have to go for it, but you might have to put players on to make a difference. Young Amad scored last time, so don’t be surprised if he comes on.
“We’re going for it, we know we have to score which is a good position to be in, we can’t sit back and soak up the pressure, we know we’re better when we go forward.”
