Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why he named an unchanged XI for the game against Bournemouth.

Speaking ahead of the game against Bournemouth, Solskjaer said: “I have got many reasons to play them, but it is also difficult to leave players out who have done so well and they know they are a big part of the team that is getting up the table and getting better performances.

“So, of course, it is a squad game, but then again this game played really well last time against Brighton. There are no problems and everyone is 100 per cent now.”

Solskjaer also sent a message to the players ahead of the game against Bournemouth.

“Go out, work hard, do all of the unselfish bits that we have always seen from the best Man United teams,” he added.

“That is one of the biggest attributes that we have always had over the years. Good players are working harder than the opposition. I want my team and my players to work harder than the opposition and then the quality will shine through.”
