What has pleased you most about the performances in the last two games?
"I think the attitude. In the first 15-20 minutes against Huddersfield, we had loads of the possession, loads of the ball, but we didn't create chances. But they were patient enough to wait for it and, of course, when you score at a set piece with Victor [Lindelof, whose header led to the goal]... I've always thought that centre-backs should come up at corner kicks, and he's been staying at the back. Just before this game we'd said [that], because we lacked a little bit of height, so Victor, he goes up, gets ahead of his man and Nemanja [Matic] scores. That settled everything, when you get the first goal, and I thought we played some excellent stuff towards the half-time. We struggled a bit for ten minutes [after the break] but then we settled again."
You brought Angel [Gomes] on towards the end [against Huddersfield], and James [Garner] has been part of the last couple of squads as well. Is that something you want to keep doing: involving, helping and promoting the young players?
"Of course, because that sends a signal to the boys that 'you are close', because they are. They've done really well in training. When you get the chance to put a player out there for 15 minutes at Old Trafford to give him that experience, Angel was, of course, the one I wanted to put on. And we probably would have still done it if we'd needed a goal, as well, because he's that sharp."
The games keep coming thick and fast, with Bournemouth next at Old Trafford. What are you expecting from them?
"A tough game. They should have been two, maybe three up, against Spurs, and it ended up them losing by five. That's a very strange, strange result, if you look at the performance. I think Spurs will feel they got the best out of that game. I have to say, they [Bournemouth] had two or three chances towards the end of the half with headers, but they should have been two up. But in between, Spurs can just go bang, bang, bang and punish you. It's sad to hear about Simon Francis's injury. That's a big blow for them, of course, and let's just hope he gets a quick recovery and we wish him all the best."
Solskjaer: Pogba's attitude has been perfect
Solskjaer has refused to take credit for Paul Pogba's good form, stressing the player's attitude has been "perfect"...
"You've got to be concentrated. Josh is strong and quick, with loads of energy about him, so you've just got to be aware of him. Josh has really developed since I had him in the Reserves here. It's great to see him having such a great career. He's doing well for Norway, so back home he's one of the few that we can really enjoy watching in the Premier League! But I hope the Norwegians won't enjoy watching him in this game, because hopefully we can stop him."
