Marcus Rashford gave United the lead before half-time with his 20th goal in all competitions.

Despite the difference in both the talent at his disposal in comparison to Granada and the stature of the two clubs, Solskjaer was taking nothing for granted before the match.

He said: “They’re full of experience and character which you expect from teams who have been promoted recently.
