Man United need 'perfect performance' to topple Man City - Solskjaer

United overturned a two-goal first-leg deficit against Paris Saint-Germain in last season's Champions League round of 16, and Solskjaer has urged his players to call upon that experience.

"It has to be a ideal performance to win with two goals against such a good team away from home", the United manager said.

"If we didn't come with the right desire and the right mentality, we could make it more hard".

Nevertheless, rather than pull the trigger, the Old Trafford hierarchy are determined to stick with the man they handed a three-year contract to ten months ago and are fully aware the project at hand is a work in progress.

"If we didn't come with the right mentality or right desire to win, I think it could have been hard for us, but we did a good job - right mentality, proper fight, respect the opponent and we got the win", the 20-year-old full-back added.

"Now we've got to go into the memory bank and think PSG because we've done it against good teams before and it gives us some hope", Solskjaer told a news conference on Tuesday.

Manchester United are looking to win the League Cup for the first time since 2017 when the Red Devils beat Southampton at Wembley in a 3-2 victory. He's only played 214 minutes under Antonio Conte, nursing an ankle injury.

United became so desperate to get rid of him they sent him packing to Inter in August for the rest of the season - and even agreed to pay more than half of his wages. We've lost Scott and Marcus since that game, we're a little bit lighter in the playing department but we can't just defend.

"When they happen and how it happens, if we concede two we need to score four so it would be good not to concede first because that makes it less hard". "We need the first goal".

"I think it was a waste (of a question) - I gave you the option (not to ask it)!" I haven't got anything to say now, my mind is on the game.

"Like I said today we did a good job, right mentality, proper fight, respect the opponent and we get the win", the club's official website quoted Dalot as saying. I can't remember how many good deals we have brought to the club in January.

'Henrik (Larsson) was good, Nemanja (Vidic) and Patrice (Evra), I'm talking about.

When January 2018 signing Sanchez was mentioned, Solskjaer said: "It's very hard because the clubs don't want to lose their best players".

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Alexis Sanchez will return to the club this Summer.

After a disastrous season and a half at Old Trafford, Manchester United made a decision to temporarily get rid themselves of the Alexis Sanchez problem last summer.
