Strikers hold key for Man United at Barcelona in Champions League - Solskjaer

Strikers hold key for Man United at Barcelona in Champions League - Solskjaer

Ole Gunnar Solskjær called on his strikers to step up as Manchester United look to overcome a 1-0 home defeat to beat Barcelona at the Camp Nou and progress to the Champions League semi-finals, describing doubts over who could provide goals as "the $100m question". "[PSG] is not that long ago and we are one goal better off [now]".

It will be a much needed bit of confirmation for both player and club as the rumours surrounding his future have been shrouded in mystery for much of the past few months. Tomorrow is a tough day for everyone, for me and him, and he has the same objective as me, to get a clean sheet. "Yes, they controlled the game towards the end, they had the possession but they never really bothered us in our own half", the Norwegian submitted.

"We can be in the tie in the 93rd minute", he said - referencing Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time penalty against PSG that put them through to the last eight. I'm not sure if he's going to be available against West Ham.

Asked if he felt Barcelona would be torn between playing their normal open game or trying to close the match up knowing that Manchester United will have to come out and attack them he said: 'We have scored a goal away from home but we can't sit on that.

"That memory of PSG will help the players, "Solskjaer told reporters in his press conference on Monday".

In the last 16, they recovered a 2-0 deficit against Paris St-Germain by winning 3-1 at the Parc des Princes to go through on away goals.

Barcelona's Lionel Messi has scored 22 goals in 31 Champions League games against English opponents, more than any other player in the competition.

Asked if the prospect facing his current side on Tuesday was more hard, Solskjaer said: "In football, anything can happen".

"We need to score goals", Solskjær said.

"We know that if we are at our best and if we make Barcelona... because we had them flustered at times here as well". It seems logical to me that you play the first leg on a Wednesday then the second leg is on a Wednesday'.

"Historically Barcelona is the best side from the last 10 years so we know it will be a massive effort".
