Burnley vs Manchester United team news: Predicted XI with Scott McTominay out and Paul Pogba in contention to start
The Norwegian boss was delighted as his side responded to Matty Longstaff’s early strike and ran out 4-1 winners with ease at Old Trafford.
Even a knee injury sustained by midfielder Scott McTominay didn’t dampen the mood too much as Solskjaer admitted the victory set them up perfectly for their game with Burnley just 48 hours later.
The Scotsman is set to miss the clash as the Red Devils find out the extent of his knee ligament issue but they were able to rest key forwards Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford for around half an hour such was their comfortable lead.
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba was the man to replace McTominay at half-time on Boxing as he continues to return from an injury lay off.
