Conte may NOT be available, Pogba ‘determined to join Real Madrid’, Cristiano Ronaldo latest


Manchester United bounced back from their Liverpool humiliation in perfect fashion with a 3-0 win at Tottenham yesterday.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring with an outrageous volley before setting up Edinson Cavani to make it 2-0.

Marcus Rashford wrapped up the points on the counter attack after coming off the bench and left Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in a job for at least a few more days.

Ronaldo admitted after the game the pressure got to the players in the build up but he was pleased with their reaction.

The Portuguese said: “It was tough. We didn’t expect the last result in the Premier League.”But I hope this time, we turned a page.

“Everyone knows his role in the team. It’s not only the coach that many people point out, it’s the players as well.

“But I believe that some things happen for a reason and we have to be happy for this amazing afternoon.

“We win 3-0 in an away stadium against a difficult team and we are so pleased about that and happy.”

And Solskjaer heaped praise on elder statesman Ronaldo and Cavani after saying he didn’t feel the game was last chance saloon for him,

The Norwegian said: “Both of them have been really really good.

“Tuesday morning’s training session by Edinson Cavani is the best I’ve seen by an individual since I came here.

“”He led the line as a good example for everyone, how to go about changing the mood, changing the performance.

“The two were told early on they would play up front as a two and they have been like two peas in a pod. It worked today, two excellent goals.

“They’re fit lads and the experience showed through today. Both of them have led the line well this week, all week from training on Tuesday morning to tonight.

“The performance was really good from the start, it was really good from Tuesday morning when we worked on something we thought would work and it did.

“Every man to a tee did their job, we kept a clean sheet and kept the ball away from David. He didn’t have a save to make. It’s great going over to your fans to celebrate with them because they deserve this as well.

“When you win a game of football you’re so happy, you work all week. We’ve come in Tuesday morning, we’ve worked really hard on the tactics, the mentality to get ready for this difficult game.

“We put a shift in, of course, but it’s been pleasing to work with the players. When we had a meeting about what we would do, everyone [had their] head down, work hard, do their best.

“You almost have to be in a dressing room to know the difference between winning and losing straight after the game.”
