Solskjaer defends Degea and team selection
“Obviously everyone has to perform and everyone has a chance every game to stake a place in the team. David knows he should have saved the second goal but that’s done now, we have to move on and look forward to Wednesday,”
“It’s hard for a keeper to make amends. So much easier for outfield players. David showed in the rest of the game, he made a few good saves, but he knows he could have saved that one.”
The Norwegian tactician made five changes to the Starting lineup at Chelsea but he has defended his team selection post-match.
“We picked the team today to give us the best opportunity to go through in the cup and be ready for Wednesday and it didn’t work today,”
Eric Bailly suffered a nasty head injury after colliding with harry maguire in the first half, Solskjaer was asked about the condition the defender is at the moment
“Eric is in hospital going through routine checks and protocols. I’ve not spoken to the doctor about him of course that had a big big impact on the game,”
“Eric played very well and we conceded just after the restart which was v disappointing and Eric was a big part of us not having any chances against us.
“We have loads of things to learn as a team but we have learnt and we are developing and this team is going forward. They took a knock confidence wise of course but let’s see how the reaction is on Wednesday.”
