Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Manchester United’s interim manager, has revealed how he used Cristiano Ronaldo clips, to mastermind their victory over Arsenal on Friday night.
United went to the Emirate stadium to claim victory through goals from former Arsenal player Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. The match ended 3-1 in favour of Manchester United.
The second and third United goals came from impressive counter-attacks and Solskjaer admitted that it was the main part of his game plan going into the game.
Solskjaer said that the video he watched before the match was United’s victory over Arsenal in the Champions League in 2009. Ronaldo’s goal that came from the counter-attack was the main highlight of the video and Solskjaer said that the same pattern helped them now over Arsenal.
Solskjaer said: “It’s fantastic to go through in the cup. It’s one of the hardest games you can get.
“We’d worked hard at defending and counter-attacking.
“Counter-attacking is classic Manchester United – Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ji Sung-park.
“We’ve scored so many at Arsenal over the years,” Solskjaer said after the game.
