#PremierLeagueStories – #OleGunnarSolskjear nails difference between Man Utd and Wolves after “lucky” win #MUFC

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United benefited from a longer break between matches in last night’s victory over Wolves.
While United last played on Saturday, in their 2-2 draw with Leicester, Wolves were back in action just 48 hours after Sunday’s 1-1 draw with Tottenham.
And Solskjaer, who admits his team didn’t play particularly well, thinks that had an impact as Marcus Rashford netted a deflected injury time winner.
“It was one of those nights when, towards the end, you want fans to help you but we didn’t need that help today,” Solskjaer said.

“We had a bit of luck with the deflection but you keep going and that is an aspect that this team has developed. The never-give-up attitude.
“We have done it so many times this season and it is starting to become a habit, which is good.
“We had to defend well because, on the counter-attack, Wolves are always so dangerous. I thought Eric [Bailly] did fantastically all night, breaking up a few counter-attacks and Nemanja [Matic, in the] second half.

“We just adjusted a couple of positions in the second half to stop their counters and I think it worked. David [De Gea] had to make a save and he did. It was a good save, it was an important one for us.
“You don’t expect a 4-3 or a 5-4 against Wolves, you expect a tight game.
“They make you really work for the points and we had to work hard tonight and I think maybe the extra day’s recovery helped us, of course, because they looked tired in the last 20 minutes and you think, keep going boys, don’t stop believing. The belief is there in this group.

“We didn’t perform as well as we want to but we won a game against a very difficult side to play against, Wolverhampton. We’ve struggled.
“It’s the first win in the league for me against them. We’ve beaten them in the FA Cup but I think we’ve played them seven times and there have never been many goals in the games. For me, this is a big step forward, when you don’t perform, but you still win.”
