Man Utd boss Solskjaer: I've followed Potter since his Ostersund days

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits he followed Graham Potter's coaching career in Sweden with Ostersund.

United meet Potter's Brighton tonight.

Solskjaer said, "I followed his progress through the league with Östersund in Scandinavia. He moved there to get his coaching philosophy and experience and he ended up beating Arsenal with them in the Europa League in London. He had a fantastic impact on Swedish football there and you can see now he's getting his team to play the way he wants them to play, so it's going to be a game in which we have to perform really well to get points.

"You can see they're a very well-coached team when you watch them, you see the patterns and how they work and what their thinking is. So we know this will be a difficult challenge and the last couple of trips down to the coast haven't been the best for us, but we need to put that right and work to get three points."
