Solskjaer aims to replicate spirit of ’99 at Manchester United

Since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the Manchester United helm, Lukaku seems to have lost his first-choice striker role to 21-year-old Marcus Rashford.

Speculation linking 26-year-old Pogba to the LaLiga giants has resurfaced this season and he will be a central figure when Barca and United meet in the Champions League quarter-finals, beginning with the first leg in Manchester on Wednesday.

Solskjaer, last month appointed as the permanent United boss, famously scored the injury-time victor in the Champions League final when Alex Ferguson's United side won three trophies in 1999.

"We never, ever accepted anyone being below par in training".

"I prefer not to talk about players from other teams because I am sure there are also players at Barça that can make other teams better", Bartomeu added. "We all watched that game at Barça".

And Leno, 27, gave his reaction to the disappointing result after the game after the Gunners dropped crucial points in the top-four race.

"I want my players to really push each other and demand 100 per cent attitude from each other every single day".

"It's complicated to describe what you have to do to win against this team". "But we know Barcelona are a very good and special team". "I'm coming back to my second home", wrote Pique on Twitter after the Champions League draw in March pitted Barcelona and United together. "It will be fantastic".

Romelu Lukaku says he is not surprised by Marcus Rashford's recent success for Manchester United and has heaped praise on his "level-headed" team-mate, despite the pair competing for a starting role.

"But I just think Barcelona will have too much for them over two games - mainly because of that guy Lionel Messi".

And Barca could still win the treble this term with a Copa del Rey final against Valencia and a Champions League campaign still to play.
