“We needed to get points on the board and not let teams run away with it,” says Solskjaer.

“Yes we have a game in hand, but we have to win.”

“We have to be aggressive and go into every game humble and working hard,” adds the boss.

“It doesn’t matter where we are after this one, but at the end of the season.”

“We are better off than this time last season, but no-one remembers the league table in January.

“For us it’s about improving and we showed that we can bounce back from disappointment.”

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be able to welcome back Edinson Cavani when Manchester United take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Tuesday night.

The Uruguayan striker, whose four goals for the club have all come on the road, is available for selection after serving his three-match domestic ban.

With the 33-year-old not having played since the Wolves game on 29 December, he should be fresh for this crunch encounter, in which a win would see the Reds move three points clear at the summit of the Premier League table, ahead of Sunday’s trip to face current leaders Liverpool at Anfield.

“Edinson has trained well since he’s been banned. He’s had a couple of days off as well – you can’t train too much. He’s ready to go,” Solskjaer told reporters.

“He’s a different option. He’s a different type of striker to Mason [Greenwood], Anthony [Martial] and Marcus [Rashford]. I’m glad to have him back and that’s why we brought him in.

“He’s contributed really well so far. I’m sure he’ll be really important for us between now and the end of the season. The end of the season starts tomorrow night.

Eric Bailly was forced to come off during the first half at Old Trafford with a neck injury, while Ole revealed in his post-match press conference that Victor Lindelof, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba had all been ruled out of the third-round tie with fitness issues.

Manchester United new signing Amad Diallo is not yet train with United team so the 18-year-old Ivorian winger is not part of the Red devil’s squad against Burnley tonight.
