Barcelona boss Valverde: Man United have something special late in games

Barcelona boss Valverde: Man United have something special late in games

Alexis Sanchez could be in line for a surprise call-up for Manchester United's Champions League quarter-final second leg with Barcelona after travelling with the club to Spain. "We didn't keep the ball or create chances". And it has prompted talk about the 26-year-old's future, with Manchester United one of the clubs interested in his signature, as per the Sport.

Now Solskjaer has told the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to pull their fingers out and do their jobs.

"We have to defend well but we have to have that little bit extra to score goals against teams like this. I expect them to be ready".

The Chilean has been sidelined for the last six weeks because of a knee injury, but has returned to bolster an attack that failed to register a shot on target in last week's defeat at Old Trafford.

But Solskjaer said: "That memory from PSG will help the players".

Sánchez returns to the ground where he played for three seasons, scoring 47 times. I can not wait to get going because it's the biggest stage.

"He's been injured, he's not had a fantastic season so far and let's hope he can end the season great".

The Red Devils were criticised by some for their cautious approach to playing Barcelona in the first leg and Solskjaer is hoping for a better performance this time out.

"That's the $100 million question - who can score the goals", the manager, back at the stadium where he scored the 1999 Champions League final victor, said. There's a summer of change coming at United, but it's hard to see Coutinho as one of potentially many arrivals.

Solskjaer called on his players to use the experience of knocking out Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 against the odds to inspire them to an unlikely victory. They made things tough for us. "We know we've done it before, but all the focus has to be on how we're going to do it again because they're a strong team".

Solskjaer's goal against Bayern Munich came in the third minute of injury time, two minutes after Teddy Sheringham had equalised, and sealed a historic treble for Sir Alex Ferguson's side.
