"He might be training this morning, so we'll see how he is".

"Quite a lot was missing today, it was the poorest performance we've had, it was a big step backwards " Solskjaer told a news conference.

"You're always measured on results, but we played a good game against Arsenal", said Solskjaer.

"I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players because they're property of other clubs but we should look for quality players, definitely, and players who could improve us as a team", said Solskjaer.

And former Liverpool FC star Lawrenson is backing Manchester United to claim victory and seal their spot in the FA Cup semi-finals on Saturday.

"Sometimes global breaks come in handy and we would have loved to play it again and put it right".

True, they remain in the Champions League following a remarkable fightback against Paris Saint-Germain, but with Barcelona looming in the quarterfinals, only the staunchest Solskjaer loyalist would argue that European glory would have been easier to clinch than the FA Cup.

But after being lauded for his impact since replacing Jose Mourinho in mid-December, the painful truth for Solskjaer is that this latest United performance was as poor as anything they produced under his predecessor this season.

However, the whistle was blown soon after, sealing United's first successive defeat since Solskjaer took over as caretaker manager.

"You can't sit down and sulk too long".

"We've played so much worse and won games and that's the odd thing when you're a manager".

"What pleases me more is as I walk down the stands there are people saying that they saw the 50s and 60s and they are still coming to the stadium", he said. I thought that was maybe the biggest letdown and the urgency, because we are better when we play quickly, we play forward, we run forward.

"If they hadn't had [David] De Gea behind, then they certainly wouldn't have won as many games as they have. The atmosphere was fantastic".
