Man Utd boss Solskjaer: We're better in shootouts than proper games

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his team are better at penalty shootouts than playing matches.

Dan James scored the winning kick for United to avoid an embarrassing Carabao Cup loss to Rochdale at Old Trafford.

"We handled it [the shoot out] really well," said Solskjaer.

"Everyone wanted to take penalties as they did against AC Milan in Cardiff [during pre-season]. I'm very pleased with the confidence. You know we're better in penalty shootouts than in proper games."
