In the FA Cup, 1/8 final, Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer commented on their 1-0 victory over West Ham.
“We dominated, I thought. “We had full control of the game in the first half,” the coach told the BBC.
“It became more of a live game after the break. Then we knew something could happen because it was 1-0 [in extra time] and we were wasting chances. Because of Everton, we realized that (3-3). We just need to decide earlier on the result of the match. That’s what we needed, but we got through it. I think we hit 15-17 times in total, and we were supposed to be clearer. We should have done it all faster, in 90 minutes, but sometimes we can’t.
We wanted to get a good result today and have positive feelings because the mood was not very good after the game with Everton. It wasn’t easy, but we did our job and we were focused. You want, of course, to win every game, to challenge others, to go to the finals. That’s what all of us at Man Utd are here for. Sometimes, we weren’t too lucky with the cup draw, but we got one step closer to the final.
The objective of McTominay? Before, Scott played in the attack. In the closing phases, he is fine. He doesn’t mind being at all in those places, you see. He just pounded the ball into the net today.’
