United fans are now waiting for the inevitable moment the club's hierarchy unveil the affable interim boss as Jose Mourinho's permanent replacement.

Unai Emery has admitted that Arsenal will need to deliver "a very big performance" if they are to overcome an in-form Manchester United side in a huge Premier League clash on Sunday.

"No problem whatsoever", Solskjaer said of the squad's focus. That has to continue. They play football with freedom, the players express themselves while also working hard, that was all successful under Ferguson and it's bringing success now.

"One, you've got to consider their approach, which system do you think they will play, which is impossible to predict because they change a lot". We were unlucky with the second goal because it was an own goal from a deflection, but I thought we were still in the game. After Wednesday's heroics in Paris, the United players should feel invincible and they look a good bet to earn another important win. We have injuries but we are Manchester United.

Virgil van Dijk might be advised to start looking for a new house.

With his feet now firmly under the table, Solskjaer seems ready to impose the tough values he learned at Old Trafford under Sir Alex Ferguson.

"There is a spirit among the players that have been rekindled once more". Giggsy (Ryan Giggs) and Becks (David Beckham) used to do the graveyard shift, running up and down that line. They'll have to reset and keep in mind just what's at stake here. In the process, the 20-time English champions became the first ever team in the history of the European Cup to go through after losing by two goals or more at home in the first leg.

"I wasn't surprised that we won", he said. That's what we want to do.

"The first 40 minutes I think we controlled, we scored and we didn't concede good chances to them". 'We've got Arsenal, a fantastic game to get yourself ready again.' 'It might be different kind of systems or is it a counter-attacking game you want - it's all sorts.

'We were used to winning, used to winning the league and challenging at the top.
