‘Man United Victory At Chelsea Is BIG’- Solskjaer

Manchester United interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said Monday’s win over Chelsea was a “massive result” as they bounced back from the first loss under him to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals.
United won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge, six days after losing at home to Paris St-Germain in the Champions League.
That defeat was Solskjaer’s first since he replaced Jose Mourinho in December.
“We had criticism after the PSG game and everyone did what we asked tonight,” said the Norwegian.
Solskjaer’s men won thanks to first-half goals from Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba, and they prevented Chelsea seriously testing goalkeeper Sergio Romero.
“The performance was fantastic, our tactics worked,” Solskjaer added.
“We asked our midfielders to press higher and get into the box and it worked. The defending in the second half was fantastic.
“Chelsea are a good team. They have their way of playing but Juan Mata did a fantastic job on Jorginho and we were absolutely perfect defensively.
“It is a massive result.”
