Solskjaer ‘enjoying’ watching Manchester United players ‘express themselves.’

Manchester United caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted that he is enjoying watching his players express themselves after his sides 4-1 victory over Bournemouth today at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils have now won all three of their fixtures since Solskjaer took over the reigns from Jose Mourinho a couple of weeks ago.

Once again United fans were treated to some scintillating attacking football during today’s win, although Solskjaer did admit that he wants his team to start to keep more clean sheets.

“You have to enjoy sitting and watching the boys express themselves. The work rate is second to none and the biggest compliment you can get as a manager is watching them work so hard because that is our foundation. The boys know they are playing at Man United which means they are skillful players and a Man United team should never be outworked.’’ The Norwegian told BBC’s MOTD.

“Training sessions have been high quality, the tempo and sharpness has been really good but we will get better and we are working towards a clean sheet. Everyone just thinks I am looking for attacking football, but the foundation of any team is how well you defend, if you keep a clean sheet, you have a good chance of winning the game.”

Next up for Manchester United is an away trip to Newcastle on Wednesday.
