Man Utd boss Solskjaer on FA Cup win: Right attitude, right application

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was delighted with their attitude for Sunday's 6-0 FA Cup rout of Tranmere Rovers.

United were 5-0 ahead at halftime on a difficult pitch.

Solskajer said, "You see that pitch and I can understand if players feel I don't want to play on this. We made sure before the game we had the right attitude. Go out there and do the job. Everyone is waiting for us to fail because it's set up for that and they were excellent, the players. Of course, early on they had a little burst in the first few minutes.

"We stood up well against it and when you score three goals in 15 minutes you're delighted. Different scorers, which also is good, confidence spread around, clean sheet, we scored on a set play so loads of positives.

"No complaining. Of course they knew they had to concentrate and focus but we said we want to play our way and find space and pockets, and try to play on the floor. If we try to play direct, in the air, we're not really that type of team. We worked out a way and I can't complain. From this morning when we met at Carrington, everyone's been focused. We want to go far in this cup. It's a great competition."
