Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has vowed to fight for the Premier League title until the end and reiterated his thoughts after the win. Since losing three of their opening six games of the season, United have only lost one of their last 19 games in the competition.

“I’m never going to say it’s done until it’s done,’ Solskjaer said in his post-match conference. “You’ve seen so many examples of teams hanging in there: do your own jobs and something might happen.

“We just think about our own games. It’s not like we are going to think we’ll lose as there’s no point. We’ve loads to play for.

“We’ve got to be there just in case, but every game is important. Every time we get three points we’ve done our job. That’s what we’ve got to do and then see what other teams do.

“We had to find a way to win it in the second half. The first half wasn’t up to the standard we wanted. It took us to half time to get our legs and energy.”

Ole will look to rest his key players in their Europa league 2nd leg match against Real Sociedad after taking a 4-0 away lead in Turin.
