Solskjaer Provides Update On Ander Herrera's Future

Manchester United practice their shooting as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to find goal threat to upset Barcelona

With only one win in their last three league games, Manchester United need the win today to keep pace in the top four race.

"Because if you think about the form of the players under Jose [Mourinho], that set of players from going from the form under Jose to Ole, they haven't just become that good overnight". That's how ruthless we have to be in the end. Top four is the clear goal in the league and they are close, but it's a tight battle that will likely go down to the last couple games of the season.

Paul Pogba was off his game yet again as Manchester United succumbed to a 1-0 loss at home to Barcelona in the Champions League, according to Paul Ince.

"You want to see players step up and say now, 'I want to be part of this'".

"That's what we expect from all the players".

According to the same media source, team mates Niclas Süle and Jerome Boateng were the first on the scene to try to separate Lewandowski and Coman .

But the ongoing links, mainly emanating from the Spanish and French press, that Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba is also on his way to Madrid appear somewhat fanciful. "He's a fantastic guy to have around.' Meanwhile, Solskjaer revealed that United's new captain will be a 'cultural architect" who embodies the values of the club and is a role model for other players. "You never know what there is, but in my talks with Paul he's always been positive here". I want to work with Mick Phelan and I want him to do the job he's doing. "He always gives his best".

One suspects that Manchester United, who are without the suspended Ashley Young and Luke Shaw and the injured Ander Herrera, Eric Bailly, Alexis Sanchez and Antonio Valencia, will play a scratch side with one eye on Camp Nou.

Pogba scored four goals and assisted three more in Solskjaer's first three games as manager, clearly boosted by a change in manager with the pair having worked together before in the club's youth system.

"He had his highest ever output physically on Wednesday night against Barcelona, he'd never ran as much in a United shirt. That was brilliant. The effort and attitude is there".

United had been on a fine run under Solskjaer's stewardship, but things have just started to tail off a little in recent times, although a seemingly mounting list of absentees certainly isn't helping the former Cardiff City manager.
