Great win, Ole!
I’m sure I am not alone when it comes to smiling at my keyboard. A good win away from home in Europe and we shouldn’t have a problem reaching the semi-finals from this position.
United have suspensions forcing key players like Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay out of the second leg, but I didn’t see enough from Granada tonight to raise any concern, even if it means playing a few fringe players.
Eric Bailly is out after testing positive for COVID-19 and I highly doubt he will be available next week, so we could see Axel Tuanzebe start after he travelled with the squad to Spain.
Anyhow, Solskjaer had a big smile on his face after the match. United writer Andy Mitten managed to get a brilliant picture before the boss walked down the tunnel.
“I always smile.”
