Solskjaer says Man Utd may have found right flank fix
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer believes Manchester United may have found a solution to their problem right flank after the 9-0 win over Southampton.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Mason Greenwood impressed in tandem on Tuesday as United destroyed the Saints at Old Trafford.
Wan-Bissaka opened the scoring as he got on the end of Luke Shaw”s cross, while Greenwood impressed Solskjaer despite not getting on the scoresheet.

And the United boss claims the pair can “form a very good right side”.
“The right side has traditionally, over the years, been a bit of a challenge for us going forward,” Solskjaer told United’s official website.
“We haven’t found like a right-winger, right-back to fill the void when Antonio [Valencia] left but Aaron is getting better.
“I thought Mason’s performance was excellent, even though he didn’t score. So the two of them can form a very good right side.”
The opposite wing remains the more potent outlet for United with Shaw again outstanding.
“Luke has played really well,” added Ole. “Of course, we have Alex Telles, who can cover for him and also play well, but Luke [is impressing] with the way he plays at the moment, with the intensity, sprinting and high-speed running.
“With the spaces that appeared for him, we felt the way he played in the first half, if he played the same way in the second half, you are always running the risk [of an injury]. There were a few players we wanted to get on.”
