Speaking ahead of Tuesday's Champions League meeting with Istanbul Basaksehir, Solskjaer was asked about his long-term vision for how he wants his United side to play.

United still lead the group on six points, alongside Leipzig, with PSG and Basaksehir three points back.

"We started well with two wins but we were disappointed with the last game against Istanbul".

"We hope that the lads will recover quickly".

"We're going to go into this game to try and win it and to win it well with a good performance because we have games coming thick and fast". That defeat last time was a big blow.

These are impressive figures for Rashford to aim for in the coming seasons and another legend in his sights, Andy Cole, told us about the differences between hunting for goals at home and overseas. "Because that deserves more than just one sentence and I don't think we have that time", the Norwegian responded.

Having recorded an unconvincing 1-0 win over West Brom in the Premier League on Saturday, bet365 make Man United 1/4 (1.25) favourites to follow that up with another victory here.

"He trained this morning, so we'll see if there's any reaction when we report tomorrow", Solskjaer said.

Solskjaer also said that Jesse Lingard would miss the Basaksehir clash because the England worldwide is still self-isolating after he had contact with a COVID-19 positive.

"Apart from that, we have one or two little niggles that we'll have to make a decision on towards the end".
