Coach Ole Solskjaer insists Man United can afford to overcome Man City, as they did before PSG in the Champions League in the 2018/19 season.
In the first leg of the League Cup semi-final at dawn on January 8 (Hanoi time), Man United had to take a defeat of 1-3 against Man City at Old Trafford.
However, in the press conference before the semi-final on January 30, coach Solskjaer still confidently asserted that MU can beat Man City, just like how they won against PSG in the Champions League in 2018 / 19.
“The next game will be very difficult, we will have to score 2 goals against Man City away and it will be great if not to concede a goal first. The players will have to play with the same spirit as the game against PSG at Champions League. We have the strength to beat Man City, the way we beat them in the Premier League, ” Daily Star quoted the Norwegian strategist.
In the round of 16 Premier League took place on December 8, 2019, Man United won 2-1 on the pitch of City. Those who scored the “Red Devils” in that match were Marcus Rasford and Anthony Martial. However, MU will not have the service of Rashford for the League Cup semi-final second leg on January 30.
“Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford cannot play, but we will not play defense. MU will play their football. The match against PSG is a good example of our ability to swim upstream. “, Coach Solskjaer added.
MU is chipping serious forces. In addition to McTominay and Rasford, Eric Bally, Marcus Rojo, Diogo Dalot and several other players suffered various injuries.
The second leg of the League Cup semi-final will take place at 2:45 am on January 30 (Hanoi time).
