Manchester United players celebrate their goals in Southampton
Old Trafford, home of Manchester United, was a testament to the sweeping Red Devils’ victory over Southampton, 9-0, in the 22nd round of the English Premier League.
“We moved the ball well and fast,” Solskjaer said in comments highlighted by his club’s website.
“We used the spaces and played crosses, and we had good moves in the back, and we had attackers who wanted to score goals and defenders as well, with a lot of effort from the backs.”
“It was one of those shows that you make every now and then and you enjoy it. I’m sure everyone enjoyed Manchester United,” he said.
“I think the performance of the whole team was great. You cannot choose any individual performance to be the best,” the Norwegian coach added.
“Sometimes your position in the league table can be determined by goal difference. So we knew that after the expulsion this was an opportunity to score goals,” he said.
The goals of the match were scored by Anthony Martial (two goals), Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Marcus Rashford, Edinson Cavani, Scott Maktoumiani, Bruno Fernandez and Daniel James.
This is in addition to an own goal by Southampton player Jan Bednarik, by mistake.
In the second minute, the match saw Alexander Jankewitz sent off for interfering strongly on Scott McTominay’s foot.
That was before Jan Bednarik was sent off in the 86th minute for blocking Anthony Martial in the penalty area in the 86th minute.
That victory raised Manchester United’s tally to 44 points, ranking second in the Premier League table by goal difference over rivals Manchester City, and two more matches he played more than he did as well.
