Everton vs Man United: Solskjaer opens up about Paul Pogba

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said his Manchester United team have the belief they can win trophies after the disappointment of losing three semifinals last season.

United last won the League Cup in 2017 under former manager Jose Mourinho while Solskjaer's side were knocked out in the semi-finals previous year by derby rivals and eventual winners Manchester City.

'We are desperate to get our hands on a trophy, these players are desperate to learn how to win'.

"And the more we win trophies, the more players will want to play for us - then the higher standard you have got to set yourself".

'We've got to start winning trophies, we haven't won in the last two or three years now and it's important.

"Paul [Pogba] has been here now for a while and, of course, he wants to win more trophies".

There have been a few players playing in the Carabao Cup earlier in the season and some will need a rest after the Leeds game.

I want to finish the Premier League this season with more goals and assists than games.

"We give a lot of importance to this competition", said Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti.

"Those two will miss the game against Everton definitely". It is a great opportunity.

"[It's ironic] since they probably did one of the best January signings ever and quickest integrations in Bruno Fernandes, who essentially became the best player in the team inside a couple of weeks".

Everton are going through a bit of an injury crisis right now and they will be without the likes of Lucas Digne, Fabian Delph, Allan and James Rodriguez.

"We are sad because James is an important player for us, but if he is not able to play, if he is not ready, we can not push and force him to come back", said Ancelotti on Tuesday.

"So we are going to put out our strongest team".

"He's been working hard in training".

"He's been unfortunate with having to isolate a few times, been in contact, or close contact with Covid, not even having it himself".

"He's got a very, very good attitude to the training and his football".

"Mason's fit enough to play".
