Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has praised Fred after his energetic contribution against RB Leipzig. The Brazilian was effective in helping United win the ball back and re-distribute it.

Solskjaer said he was pleased with the efforts from all four of his starting midfielders, who made life tough for the German side.

“The work off the ball was incredible from all four of them. That’s the basis of the team. If you work and work and win the ball in good situations to create chances. Fred covered every single blade of grass on that pitch. I just hope he recovers for the next one. The squad is good and gives us options – 4-3-3, a diamond, 4-2-1-3 or whatever we want to call it,” said the boss.

Solskjaer was half-joking about Fred’s fitness. There will be the usual routine tests to make sure he is up to speed for Sunday’s game.
