Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expects more from Alexis Sanchez
Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed Alexis Sanchez after the former Arsenal forward opened the scoring in a 3-1 win for the Red Devils in the FA Cup with Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial on target.
“It wasn’t like Alexis had an open goal, it was a great finish,” he said. “Every player, the more confident you get the more you want to get on the pitch and train and work on yourself and you trust yourself. He told the media after the FA Cup win.
“He has been injured lately so it was great to see him get 65-70 minutes tonight and he can only improve and I think he knows that himself.”
He said: “It was a massive step forward for us performance wise, as a team, the structure in the team was miles, miles, miles better compared to Tottenham a couple of weeks ago where we hung in there and David (de Gea) saved us.
“Today, Sergio (Romero) had a fantastic save at the start of the first half, but our structure was miles, miles, miles better.
“We have been working on that, we need to dig in and defend properly against good teams.
“I am not here to get excited, I am here to keep on improving the team, improving the players and just look to the next game.
