Solskjaer full of praise of Fernandes' set-piece prowess

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was left in awe on Bruno Fernandes dead-ball deliveries in their Monday night win over Chelsea.

Fernandes' provided the assist for Harry Maguire goal and almost got his name into the scoresheet after his free-kick hit the bar and Solskjaer couldn’t hide his delight with the midfielder’s outing.

"He's a top player, he wants to get on the ball. But at set-ball delivery, he's top class, one of the better ones I've seen. And Harry, we know if he can get a run on the ball he's dangerous and he got the goal," Solskjaer said after the game.

Despite the win, the Norwegian still believes his team can give more starting with their UEFA Europa League clash against Club Brugge on Thursday.

"Of course we want to be in the Champions League next year, and we've given ourselves a chance by this result, but we know that we need to improve.

"On creating chances, scoring goals. We showed a clean sheet again today, a foundation to build from. We're going to work hard, recover now because we've got a game on Thursday. So thanks for the help, all the recovery we get in Europe," he added.

The win moved United into seventh and within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea.
