Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants Manchester United to be on their best attacking display in the upcoming match against Watford.

Manchester United yet again struggled to find momentum when they played Club Brugge in the first leg of the Round of 32 of the Europa League on Thursday.

The Red Devils now return to the Premier League to face Watford at home later today.

Currently, they sit at the seventh position in the league table. A win tonight would do wonders for them taking them straight past fifth-placed Tottenham while closing the point gap between Chelsea to just three.

In the reverse leg, Man United were overpowered by the Hornets and lost 2-0.

And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he wants Manchester United to not repeat their previous mistakes while explaining his tactics going into the match.

“We had chances ourselves and we gave easy goals away,” Solskjaer told the club’s official website.

“So, we need to get back to playing proper football, attacking football.

“That game was too slow. So, hopefully, we can get at them and be on the front foot and press them, and also with the ball be more decisive with our passing and play through them, around them and get crosses in, and put pressure on them.”
