Solskjaer: How Ronaldo Helped Man Utd Beat Arsenal

With Manchester United easing into the FA Cup fifth round with victory at Arsenal, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reveals how former players Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney inspired the win.
 
 
Goals by Alexis Sanchez, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial saw United secure a 3-1 victory against Unai Emery's side and stretch Solskjaer's unbeaten streak as interim manager to eight consecutive games in all competitions.
 
"Today we looked more like a proper team. We looked more structured," Solskjaer was quoted as telling BBC Sport.
 
"We’d worked hard at defending and counter-attacking. Counter-attacking is classic Manchester United - There are so many examples of that vs Arsenal - Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, Ji Sung Park and we showed them those videos.
 
"It’s easy to get excited and talk about the future but we need to just keep working and think about the next game.
 
"We had to dig deep. The attitude and work-rate was important. Towards the end it was comfortable but not during the 90 minutes." he added.
 
 
United have scored 22 goals while conceding five in the eight games under Solskjaer in all competitions.
 
Where does Rooney and Ronaldo rank among the greatest ever attacking duo's in footballing history? Let us know in the comments section below.
