Angel Gomes reveals Solskjaer emphasis for Man Utd preseason

Angel Gomes says Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is trying to teach his Manchester United players how to play a high-press while on preseason tour in Australia.

The Red Devils kicked off their preparations for the 2019/20 campaign with a win over Perth Glory on Friday night.

They will take on Leeds United in Perth on Wednesday and Gomes says Solskjaer wants to see his players put plenty of pressure on the opposition.

"Everything that you saw in the game is what we've been practising," he told MUTV.

"We've been working hard, trying to get the front-foot press and trying to create and score as many goals as possible.

"We've got very quick, direct and pacy players and we tried to press, stay high, get everyone locked up. We did that so we would create more chances, win the ball up higher and try to dominate the game."
