Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sends message to United fans after first leg defeat

Manchester United have to produce another unlikely Champions League comeback to keep their hopes alive after Barcelona won the match due to Luke Shaw won goal in the 12th minute.

However, United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has defiantly claimed that the Red Devils can achieve another great comeback in the Nou Camp after falling to Luke Shaw’s own goal.

United take hope from their sensation comeback win at Paris Saint Germain and boss Solskjaer said: “We’re still in the tie.

“We go there with one thing in mind – we need to score.

“We’ll go there with work to be done, but a chance. It’s a tough one, but we’ve done it before. We’ll go there with the knowledge that we can score.”

United failed to register a shot on target in the Champions League for the first time since 2005 as they sank to a fourth defeat in five games.

They did keep Lionel Messi reasonably quiet and the Barca star was left bloodied with a suspected broken nose when Chris Smalling smashed into him.

Solskjaer said: “He’s a fantastic player. You see the cross for the goal, his awareness and technique. We did as well as we could against him.”
