Man Utd boss Solskjaer enjoys fresh Cup dig at Mourinho

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed a new dig at Tottenham counterpart Jose Mourinho ahead of tonight's Carabao Cup tie with Brighton.

Solskjaer aimed another playful dig at Mourinho having joked about the Tottenham boss complaining that the goalposts were five centimetres smaller than regulation for last week's Europa League tie against Shkendija in Macedonia.

Mourinho retaliated by mentioning the number of penalties United have been awarded under Solskjaer, and the United boss couldn't resist a reference to Spurs reaching the Carabao Cup fourth round without playing a game after receiving a bye against Leyton Orient.

"It depends how you want to get there," he smiled ahead of Wednesday's game. "You've got teams getting there without playing, even to this round!"
