The League Cup quarter-final game against Everton was summed up by Manchester United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (2-0).
“You never know what’s going to happen in football ahead of time. The first goal always changes the game. I knew my replacements would make a difference,” Solskjaer told the BBC.
“We got off to a great start; for the first 20-25 minutes we were outstanding and we should have led by 2-3 goals. The opponents had a decent run then, but we were good again after the 70th minute.
In the first half, Cavani could have scored 3 goals. He’s a top forward; he’s going well and skillfully performing. His purpose was a perfect one.
Nice match: supporters, one-on-one fights, yellow cards, and openings on both sides. I enjoyed it.
We know we have players who, if we can defend well, can give us a win. The guys are in a good mood and we’re going to tackle the next energy-filled matches.
The semi-finals are sometimes worse than the finals because getting out of the tournament is the worst moment.”
