Leicester v Man United: What has been said?

Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “I spoke about it a few days ago about trophies, sometimes it can hide the fact what you’re doing in the background.

“But I feel we are improving all the time and we’re getting closer and to win a trophy could be a boost for everyone, yes.

“We’ve had this before when we won the Carling Cup in the 2006 season with Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra, their first wins and it was the first of many.

“We feel, or we hope, a trophy can be a catalyst of more to come.”
