Solskjaer exclusive: It’s not about me and Pep

First of all Ole, when we look back, we’re trying to do the double over City which hasn’t happened in a while, but the performance at the Etihad in December – when we look at the season as a whole – is that maybe the best performance of the season?
“I think at times it was exhilarating. At times it was the best, because from say the 10th until the 30th minute, we were absolutely fantastic. That’s football at its highest level. Then again we’re playing against a good team and we didn’t keep the ball as well as we’d like second half. So the overall 90 minutes we played miles better than that, but those 20 minutes were the best I’ve seen from my team.”

It’s a significant game because it’s the Manchester derby but in terms of the top-four battle, it’s another huge match, isn’t it?
“Yeah, I’ve got to say we’re looking forward to it. It’s a derby. We’ve found form, we know form might be thrown out the window in a derby but still the boys are confident going into this game.”
