Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjær was delighted with his club’s 1-0 win over Leicester City, but admits they need to move on.

Solskjaer was contented to see Manchester United’s struggle for the win, but doesn’t get “too excited” because of one positive result.

After their three unsuccessful games in the Premier League, it was important for the Red Devils to succeed in the game against the Foxes.

The Norwegian accepts The Red Devils need to raise their game level further so that they could hit their targets.

He told BBC Sport: “We hung in there. It was the first time this season where we have had to defend for large periods. We have dominated the other games but today we saw a team that could defend in their own half. They are a good side who want to get into the top four. To keep a clean sheet is great but let’s not get too excited because we know we can play better. We defended as a proper team.”

As the Man Utd players like Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard missed the match because of their injuries, Solskjaer had to enter the arena youngsters as Axel Tuanzebe and Tahith Chong.

“We have a big squad and it is just about getting them ready for when they are needed,” Solskjaer said. They were needed when we were struggling and they did well.”
