Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has challenged Fred and Scott McTominay to perform with the same level of intensity and energy against West Ham tomorrow as they did against Barcelona in the midweek.
McTominay and Fred earned plenty of plaudits for their performance in the midfield in the Champions League but OGS has set them a new challenge, asking them for consistency in their performances:
“Well that’s the thing. When you get the chance and you take it you can’t say that they didn’t take it,” Solskjaer told MUTV. “Hopefully we will see more of that.
“Let’s see how they are, if they can manage Saturday and then Tuesday again. We have got to think about these next games as a little cluster.
Ander Herrera is still out with the injury he sustained during the training session last week
“Herrera’s still out, won’t be available, I doubt Nemanja is available because of his illness,” the Norwegian said. “Maybe, because he’s a warrior and he really wants to join in and help his teammates. Let’s see after today because he trained individually yesterday.”
