MORNING UNITED FANS
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claims United belatedly “lit the fireworks” to clinch last night’s 2-1 comeback win over Brighton.
But a new injury doubt over Marcus Rasfhord and a positive Covid-19 test for Eric Bailly dampened Solskjaer’s mood.
Mason Greenwood and Rashford fired home on 62 and 83 minutes after United old boy Danny Welbeck hit an early opener.
And Solskjaer admitted: “I thought we started well but when they scored, after that we couldn’t find our rhythm again.
“Second half we played some good stuff. More runs in behind, more movement, better movement.
“Sometimes after international breaks it takes time – and then maybe the fireworks have to be lit at half-time.”
Of Rashford’s late substitution, the Norwegian said: “You just hope he can recover from it. He had to come off, but he’s a tough one.”
Solskjaer also confirmed centre-back Bailly will be out “a little while” after contracting coronavirus.
Meanwhile, Juventus have reportedly told Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola they can’t afford to re-sign the United midfielder.
