Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has now revealed that United are targeting 3rd spot in the Premier League standings.
“At times it was very, very good football we could and should have scored more goals to put the game to bed before half time,” Solskjaer said. “It’s always worrying going into half time knowing you should have scored [more] goals the way we controlled the game, pressed and stopped them playing.
“I’m very happy with it but there is still more to come and we shouldn’t be 100 percent happy with it.”
“I have never said fourth is our aim. We want to win, we want to go up to third, of course we want to,” he said. “Hopefully we can count the points and only have two teams ahead of us at the end.”
Ole also reserved special praise for hat-trick hero Anthony Martial.
“The third goal was a great goal. But for me the first and the second were better. He’s in the box, ready to go. We have worked on that, getting in the box in that situation more often,” Solskjaer said.
“At the near post he showed composure and I think, as I said, the first goal was vital the way he turns and gets himself into a position to score from Marcus’ cross. [I’m] very pleased with that.
“He’s getting more and more into those position he could have had one at Spurs – a great turn and finish and a great save, he’s in good form.”
