“The other teams we have played have played pretty much the same system so today it was a different game and we played differently and the tactics changed but that is what we have to do to be one of the top teams, we have to adapt. And we keep pushing and improving.”
Solskjaer buttress Rashford’s point after revealing how he worked on tactics when they traveled to Dubai.
“The plan was to go quickly and attack with pace, the goal was fantastically taken by Marcus. The defensive job Jesse does and the pass from Paul made the goal,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
