“It was massive for us,” Solskjaer said. “We know what momentum can give you or take away from you and, of course, the goal we conceded in the last minute against Milan, it is a mental test.
“How did we react and everyone has reacted in the right way. We have kept a clean sheet. We started poorly.
“Then again our back four, they won the ball back for us. The recovery was really good and we kept them away from hitting the target once. Dean [Henderson] didn’t have one save to make which is the sign of a good performance.”
OGS also praised the development of young Mason Greenwood.
“Yes, he was top,” Solskjaer said of the Englishman. “But then he has performed really well recently.
“He’s growing in maturity. His decision-making has always been really good. He just needs that goal again. It will come, today he was very, very close and it was a top performance.”
