Solskjaer: Man Utd players don't do complacency

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is demanding his players show total commitment in tonight's Carabao Cup tie with Colchester.

United host their League Two opponents in the last eight of the competition on Wednesday night with Solskjaer's side heavy favourites to secure a place in the semi-finals.

“When you put that Manchester United shirt on, complacency should not be in your head," Solskjaer told MUTV.

“And when there is a semi-final and a potential final there at stake, of course you have got to go out there and start brightly, start quickly, get your goals and then hopefully get through.

“We are at home but, of course, this is a team that has knocked out Tottenham and Crystal Palace, so there is no way we are going to take them lightly.

"Even though we are favourites and big favourites, we know you have to go out there, perform, create chances and score goals. We hope to do so."
