​Solskjaer confident Man Utd will bounce back from Young Boys defeat

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has no doubt his team can bounce back from their loss against Young Boys in the Champions League.

United got their campaign off to the worst possible start, losing to the weakest side in the group on paper away from home.

Despite taking a 1-0 lead, a ten-men United were eventually beaten 2-1 thanks to a 95th minute Young Boys winning goal.

Now they take on West Ham United in the Premier League on Sunday.

Solskjaer told reporters about the squad's reaction, per the club website: "Of course, you wait to see, when you see them this morning, when you come back in.

"The attitude is like you expect it to [be], they're focused, of course a little bit disappointed but not too downbeat.

"You know it's a setback, we have to do better and we've got five games to get those 10, 12 points we need.

"Of course, it's not the start we wanted but we're a team that can bounce back again and the group is very good."
