Manchester United’s caretaker manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has admitted he used Cristiano Ronaldo clips, to mastermind their victory over Arsenal on Friday night.

United progressed to the FA Cup fifth round with a 3-1 win at the Emirates as Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial found the net.

The second and third United goals were scored after impressive counter-attacks and Solskjaer admits that was a key part of his game plan going into the game.

And among those shown was Ronaldo’s goal in United’s victory over Arsenal in the Champions League in 2009.

“It’s fantastic to go through in the cup. It’s one of the hardest games you can get.

“We’d worked hard at defending and counter-attacking.

“Counter-attacking is classic Manchester United – Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ji Sung-park.

“We’ve scored so many at Arsenal over the years,” Solskjaer said after the game.
