Ole's verdict on Villa victory
The manager has his say on another excellent comeback win on the road for the Reds...
What’s the latest on Harry’s injury? The boy landed on top of him and he twisted and got a knock on his ankle. So we just have to test him. I doubt he’ll be ready for Tuesday, to put it that way, but we’ll just have to do all the scans and checks we can. What did you say to the players at half-time? Yeah, sometimes, you know, you want to up the tempo a bit. I was confident. I was very confident. I felt we played okay in the first half, we created chances but didn’t take them. They didn’t have too much, Dean didn’t have too much to do but it was a very good goal. You can’t stop those quality moments. It was just about confidence, believing in what we are doing and they showed that in abundance. The game turned around in a flash with Bruno’s penalty and Mason’s finish… Yeah, Mason’s turn and finish was absolutely top. The boy is learning. He’s learnt the hard way and he’s got to play, he’s learning on the job. It is the intensity of this league, it’s high, and he had a hard game on Thursday and plays today and produces that goal. Well done. He’s scored the most goals as a teenager for United in the Premier League and more to come? More to come, definitely. One hundred per cent. The boy is learning, hungry to learn and his desire and attitude is improving all the time. He’s got somebody to learn from as well – Edinson’s goal today shows what he’s capable of. What did you like most about that third goal? Everything. The cross from Marcus, Paul created the chance by driving up the field and not settling for 2-1 and getting 3-1. Edi is so good at timing his movement. That’s 70 points and the Champions League is virtually assured, it’s also 25 games unbeaten away from home now… Brilliant. Very good. We’ve got a final to look forward to. The boys are learning and getting better and better as a group, as a unit, and the spirit in the group is getting better. You can hear them in the crowd, supporting their team-mates. These eight days, we knew the squad had to come together and everyone has got to be available to play, they have to play, and they’ve been excellent.
