Solskjaer hoping FA Cup can be Manchester United's 'catalyst'

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is targeting FA Cup success this season and hopes winning the competition can act as a ‘catalyst’ for a trophy-laden period at Manchester United.

United remain in contention for major silverware this season with both the Europa League and FA Cup still to play for, with the Red Devils travelling to face Norwich in the quarter-finals of the latter competition on Saturday evening.

The club are currently in fine form having embarked on a 13-game unbeaten run in all competitions either side of the season’s suspension, whilst their clean sheet in Wednesday’s 3-0 victory over Sheffield United means the side have conceded just three goals during that time.

Solskjaer is now targeting major silverware following an encouraging period for his side, and hopes the FA Cup can act as a catalyst for future success as the 12-time winners seek to win a first trophy since a League Cup and Europa League double three years ago.

“The FA Cup is a fantastic tournament and it’s a fantastic final to play a part in,” Solskjaer said at his pre-match press conference. “It’s a fantastic trophy to lift.

“Our team now is a new team, and to get our hands on the first trophy and to win a first title would be fantastic, and hopefully a catalyst for things to come.”
