Ole Gunnar Solskjær insists his strikers must step up against Barcelona

Solskjaer

"I don't look back on that night too often; I'm just looking forward to seeing if we can play better against Barcelona".

Alexis Sánchez was among the forwards who travelled to Barcelona, having finally returned after a six week lay-off with knee injury. We have been practicing finishing, but it's also about being focused and confidence.

"We know we need to perform better and play ourselves".

"He's not had a fantastic season so far", said Solskjaer of Sanchez.

"We've got the summer window, the transfer window, improving the squad, talking to the players about how we want them to approach next season".

Sport are reporting that both his agents will sit down on a table with Barca officials following the Champions League quarter-final second leg against Manchester United and take a final call on whether or not the winger is moving.

He said: 'Joyful acclamations at Jesus's entrance into Jerusalem, followed by his humiliation. Peter's Square, which is jammed with tens of thousands of faithful.

United also had too little of the possession to seriously damage Barcelona and Solskjaer acknowledged they can not afford that to happen again.

"Maybe teams are more open against us", he said of why he thought they had found goals easier to come by on their travels. Football games are always decided on decisions and mentality. "If we get the first goal it would be so important". "Let's hope that when he is on the pitch, he can be happy with his performance". Or you look at Juan Mata when he scored the free-kick against Juventus. "Sometimes it's quality [that counts], sometimes it's David de Gea at the other end".

'However, we would still encourage supporters to arrive earlier than you may usually do, given the numerous stories of problems accessing the stadium and several instances where Barcelona appear to have changed the agreed plans and access routes on the day.

"Of course, we have to use set-pieces". "We're playing a fantastic team and I know my guys are going to run until the ground takes them".

But Solskjaer is aware for all his talk of tactics and when would be ideal to score that it will be redundant if his players do not step up, particularly in attack.
