Exclusive: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ahead of Man Utd v Arsenal – Sharpness and fitness is there to see


It’s a good problem you’ve got now, having to select a team isn’t it because you have a lot of players in form and a lot of players who all deserve to start…
“The thing is it doesn’t matter who starts or who finishes the game, it’s the end result. That’s what we’re here for you. We’re here as a team and a group, there isn’t any individual that’s going to be in front of the team. Whoever starts knows that there will be three players coming on most likely. The subs are always ready and they had an impact this week and they might do again.”

You’re old team-mate Gary Pallister was in the studio last week and he wondered what your technique is for letting a player know he’s not playing one game but will be important for the next one, in the way Sir Alex used to…
“Well of course I’ve probably been on the end of that more than anyone about being on the bench! [Smiles] Of course the gaffer was fantastic when you sat down for the one-to-one chats with him. I remember many of them. Some reasons and excuses I didn’t particularly agree with but he was fantastic at making you feel involved and that’s the part with us too; everyone is going to be important, be it from the first minute, the last minute, this game, the next game. We’ve got a week now, well six days, Sunday, Wednesday, Saturday with three massive games before the international break and everyone knows that they’ll be called upon.”
