Guardiola played down the incident post-game, telling media: “No problem it is solved.”

The two managers then came together at the end of the game, sharing a moment well after the fulltime whistle had sounded.

The classy Guardiola showed his respect for Solskjaer and United post-game, opening by saying: “Congratulations Manchester United first of all.”

“Ten games left, now arrive the important part of the season. The last 10 games are important and we start next Wednesday. We will try to win as many games as possible to be champions.

“Against West Ham we played much, much worse than today. Against West Ham we didn’t deserve to win and maybe today we didn’t deserve to lose.

“We were not good in front of goal, our strikers were not brilliant today but it happens.”

As for Rashford’s potential injury, Solskjaer said he was not entirely sure of the severity.

“I don’t know. It’s something with his ankle,” he said.

“When he sprinted 70 yards to save a goal, it showed the attitude of the boy. I think he went over on his ankle but we need to do a scan, I’ve not had time to speak to the doctor yet.”
