Following their barren draw against Liverpool in the English Premier League, Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer rained praise down on five players.
Solskjaer was forced to make three first-half substitutions after Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard suffered hamstring injuries and Marcus Rashford had to play on with a swollen ankle. Lingard was subbed on in the 25th minute for Juan Mata but he didn't last long as he was withdrawn 18 minutes later for Alexis Sanchez.
In a post-match press conference, Solskjaer heaped praise on five players, "I learned a lot about the players today," Solskjaer said. "I learnt a lot about Scott McTominay, who I've been waiting to give a chance in a more attacking role, he can run into the box, is dangerous, he was a Darren Fletcher today for us. Absolutely fantastic, he's not played since Reading, that's six weeks ago, January 5.
"Andreas, with the criticism he's had to come on and did fantastic. So I learnt a lot about the character of the team. That first-half wasn't good enough with the ball, never seen us be so sloppy on the ball, giving easy balls away but then we got through it.
"Very happy with [the defence] and that's always the foundation, if you keep clean sheets and keep David not very occupied, we know we've got something going and teams have to be build from that foundation. Victor and Chris fantastic, Luke Shaw, that was his best performance under me. It's one of them things, you want him to go forward a bit more but Salah and [Sadio] Mane aren't bad, either, so we had to take that bit of caution
