Solskjaer: I'm greedy - I wanted more goals!
"There were smiles on the players' faces, the fans' faces and the coaches' faces," admits Ole in our interview...
That was just what you asked for, right? "Yeah, I thought the first hour was good. We created chances, there were smiles on the players' face, there were smiles on the fans' faces, and the coaches' faces, and we could have scored many more. But you can't have everything." It was nice to see all three forwards score... "Yeah, and the reason we put the three of them together is that we know they are a dangerous trio, with players behind them who can provide chances. Well done to Mason for a very, very calm finish. He was composed and waited for the keeper. The second one was from Anthony and was probably the skill of the night. Then it was great to see Marcus finishing with his left foot. He will get into those positions quite often in a game. For him to go on the outside, on his left, it is not great for defenders to see. It is good for us because he can go inside on his right and then finish with his left." Were you wanting more goals? "Definitely, always! I said it yesterday in the press and I think sometimes you look back on these games and think that you should have had a hat-trick, or more goals, but we got the 3-0 win and we are very happy with that." You must be delighted with qualification? "Delighted! It is fantastic. There are many pleasing things - we are giving game time to youngsters and we are not conceding goals. The away game against Alkmaar looks like an important one. They are a good side. They will go far in this tournament so the last game in this group, against them, will be a tough one." Does this give you some flexibility for the final two games? "Yes. December is going to be hard and January has loads of games. Hopefully we can get through in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup. To be able to give game time to other players in the last two will give us room to rest a couple, which is important." Did Harry get a knock? "I think Harry will be okay, he finished the game anyway. Scott is more of a concern so let's see how he recovers in the next couple of days."
