Watch Ole's post-match press conference in full
After the Basaksehir win, Ole spoke to the media about Cavani, crosses, Rashford, and how to keep Bruno fresh...
Congratulations on your win. I just wanted to ask you about your thoughts about how United attacked today? "I thought there were some excellent attacks at times, some one and two touch football. I thought we started well with getting around the team, putting some crosses in, which is, of course, something we've not been known for lately but with Edinson, it's a different centre-forward in there. The last goal was also an example of one and two touch football so I'm very happy." That felt like a big result in the race for the knockout phase. How do you see that? And how do you see Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani after their performances tonight? "The group is still very open. We got two on six [points] and Basaksehir on three. We still need points to go through, one probably should be enough to go through and three probably gives you the win. Hopefully against PSG we can secure the points we need but that's another matter. Edinson and Donny did really well, both of them. The whole team played really, the tempo in the ball was really good well and we deserved the win after that first half. The second half is always different and more difficult to keep the tempo up when you're winning 3-0." Do you ever get surprised by Bruno Fernandes with the contributions he makes for your team? "Not really, no. Of course, we see him every day in training, we knew what we were going to get when we got Bruno to the team. He's a player who likes to takes risks, he likes to create chances, he likes to score goals, he likes his team, he's a winner and wants his team to win. He wants the team to do well and it shows today that he can do more than just take penalties." Donny van de Beek and Marcus Rashford played really well tonight, in positions they don't often play in. We know they can play there, but with Marcus especially, on the right, does that give you a solution going forward? "He played really well and gives us the penetration, he gives us another type of forward on that right side. When Greenwood comes on, he's a different type with the left foot coming inside. Marcus drive more on the inside, maybe put some crosses in. The balance today, with Anto [Martial] on the left and Marcus on the right worked, in this game. We were all disciplined. We played in our positions and I was really happy with how we approached the game, also defensively. The pressure was good, we made it hard for them to play." You didn't play tonight with two holding midfielders, is that something we could see potentially in the Premier League? How do you translate this form into the Premier League, because where the focus is I guess now? "The focus is on Southampton, then we have PSG, so it's relentless. We don't have the time to pick one or the other tournament here, it's next game all the time. Of course, Donny is a different type of centre-midfielder. He can run forward more than, for example, when we have Scott in there, so I was very pleased with the contribution. We need to just keep going, we're in very good form at the moment and I'm looking forward to some difficult games coming up." You suggested yesterday tat you might have to rest Bruno at some stage. But when he's playing like that, how do you pick a game where you don't need him and you can give him a rest? "You take him off. So, of course, I was thinking at half time about maybe taking a couple of more players off but you don't want to give the impression that you can just relax or that you don't take the second half seriously. Bruno is very important to us. But if the game is won at half time, or after 60 [minutes], it's easier to rest him."
