Solskjaer insists Manchester United 'played well' in Arsenal defeat

United are looking to bounce back from their first domestic defeat under Solskjaer last weekend at Arsenal - a side they overcame in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

"You're always measured on results but we played a good game against Arsenal", he told a media conference.

Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett has repeatedly stated Bale's intention to remain at the Bernabeu, but United are one of just a handful of clubs with the wherewithal to acquire the forward.

Solskjaer says United's top-four bid will not be harmed by their pursuit of FA Cup and Champions League glory.

"The more games you win, the more confidence you breed, the more hunger there is in the players".

Solskjaer has acknowledged that his team benefited from a significant decision in their favour to beat PSG, with Marcus Rashford scoring the decisive goal from a penalty awarded for handball with the help of VAR in the dying minutes.

"I believe that you get what you deserve in life, in sports". "If you work hard, show the right attitude, you can maximise your chances".

"He's probably got his reasons why he left, so you've got to ask him", he added.

Defeats for Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and PSG have led to suggestions that the tournament is opening up, but with a quarter-final against Barcelona coming up and a free-scoring Cristiano Ronaldo still in the tournament with Juventus, Solskjaer wasn't so sure.

"I think I've answered that question quite well here", he said with a smile.

"It goes in cycles, Porto won it in 2004, Monaco got to the final, Ajax, you never know".
