Ole Gunnar Solskjaer pinpoints an area Manchester United need to step up

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not impressed with Manchester United's collective defending in the second-half against Partizan Belgrade as he admitted it needs improving.

Solskjaer started the match with a back three of Harry Maguire, Phil Jones, and Marcos Rojo but reverted to a back four later in the game. The win saw United secure their first away win since the improbable comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League Round of 16 last season.

The Norwegian manager was not impressed with his side's collective defending in the game, "Second half I thought we dug in really well in the box, defended really well in the box. They played well in the second half and made us defend too deep.

"I’m not happy with the defending at the front. I think that’s been one of our strengths this season but I thought that was non-existent in the second half. That needs sorting out because we don’t want to be a team who is just defending in the box."
