Ole Gunnar Solskjaer couldn’t hide his delight with Manchester United’s derby win over Manchester City – but insisted his team are only going to get better.
Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay were on target as United sealed a league double and third win in all competitions over City this season to maintain their Champions League qualification hopes.
United had barely 28 per cent possession but limited the visitors at Old Trafford to just four shots on target and Solskjaer was full of praise for his players.
“The desire, the attitude, the commitment, the connection between fans and players and the team…” said Solskjaer when asked what he liked about the match.
“What a day they’ve had today, both the players and the fans. Of course, they make us defend – that’s just the type of team they are but if our fans can see players with commitment and attitude and desire then we’ve done our job as a coach today.
“At times we pressed them and pushed them back, we tried to be aggressive with the wing-backs and three up front. When we hit the press I think we made them make mistakes and we’re happy with the result. At times you’d like to defend with the ball but I’m not going to complain.”
