Solskjaer picks out two Man Utd players for praise after Saints win

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United’s dressing room is “bouncing at the moment” following their latest 3-2 victory over Southampton.

Yan Valery rocked Old Trafford with an outrageous opener for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s visitors, only for Andreas Pereira to level with a similarly impressive effort and Lukaku to put United on course for victory.

Ever-improving James Ward-Prowse bent home a brilliant free-kick to hush Old Trafford, but Lukaku had the final say by lashing home to seal a 3-2 win that propels Solskjaer’s side back into the top four.

“It was one of those games, it had everything,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport. “It was an open game and they came here to beat us. We should have been 1-0, 2-0 up in the first five minutes.

“They settled down and scored with two unbelievable strikes. My team did fantastic and the boys did great in the second half.

“The belief is there, they have gone so long without losing games (domestically) and are raring to go. They want to get on the ball and the confidence is high. They were class finishes from Romelu Lukaku and I am so pleased for Andreas Pereira.

“Rom is a goalscorer, he keeps practicing every single day and has quality. When we changed to two up front that helped him as well. We had some great play at times, 3-2 we did it the hard way. That’s why we are turning grey.

“We have done fantastically well away from home but we go to PSG with the belief, we have nothing to lose. We will give it a go. This club has done so many great comebacks, the tie is not done.

“The dressing room is bouncing at the moment.”
