Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been discussing tonight’s match while also reflecting on the passing of Tommy Docherty and the news of Edinson Cavani’s three-match ban for a social media post.
“It’s a sad day for everyone. I remember Tommy fondly, and him winning the FA Cup in 1977 against Liverpool.
“When the charge came through, we expected Edinson to get a ban. One thing is for sure, he’s not a racist. There was no malice in what he wrote and his words were taken out of context. He accepts, we accept it and we want to move on.
“[Aston Villa present] many challenges. They’re very well defensively set up so we’ll need to play quick and be bright to create openings.
“Their counter attacking with the front four and two quick full-backs are always going to be a threat, and physically from set plays they’re going to cause you trouble.”
