Ole Gunnar Solskjaer singled out Victor Lindelof for praise after Manchester United’s Europa League victory over Granada.

Asked whether there was a player he was particularly impressed by during the 2-0 win, Solskjaer said: ‘Yeah definitely, Victor.

‘He kept us glued together and he was good on the ball. What a pass for the first goal as well.’

On United’s win, Solskjaer added: ‘It was not a perfect night. We got three yellow cards and three suspensions. But 2-0 is very good result.

‘We know how difficult it is to come to Spain. We’ve got to play well to get a result.

‘They [Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes] have been exceptional, so important for us. It was a very good run by Rashford, takes the ball fantastically. Bruno is so confident on penalties even though the keeper almost saved it.

‘Same as always [attitude for next week]. We want to win every game. It’s still a young team, a learning team. We have to improve all the time. Football catches you so quickly if you rest. We can’t have any other approach.’
