Manchester United’s caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has said that he is excited by the FA Cup challenge after the Red Devils were pitted against Arsenal for the fourth round of the competition. The Mancunian giants have been in splendid form under the guidance of the interim head coach and the recent triumph over Reading in the FA Cup third round saw them secure their fifth successive victory.
However, their prospects of securing FA Cup success lie on beating the big teams and Solskjaer is up to the challenge of facing the Gunners on the road in the next round, he told MUTV: “Fantastic. We need these games. These players need the big games to be challenged. Of course, everyone says we have won the last five games but [they have] not been [against] big opposition. But you can only beat the teams you play and, for us to get tested and go to the next level, you need those games. And if you want to win the FA Cup, you have to beat everybody.”
