Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identifies Man Utd problems despite FA Cup win at Derby

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted his Manchester United side still have problems despite easing into the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 3-0 win at Derby.

Odion Ighalo scored twice to take his tally to three goals in his first two starts, after Luke Shaw had given United the lead just past the half-hour mark.

Derby did give Solskjaer's side a couple of scares, however, as ex-Red Devils star Wayne Rooney forced fine saves from Sergio Romero with two free-kicks.

And United's manager was relieved his side took control early on despite what he saw as a poor start.

When it was put to him that his side were in control throughout the game, Solskjaer told BT Sport: "When you win 3-0 you should think so, but there were some scary moments in there.

"Early on I didn't think we played particularly well but when you get two goals in the way we did, that is pleasing."

Derby came out battling after the restart, but Ighalo's second goal settled any nerves, while Romero kept out United's all-time leading goalscorer Rooney.

"At the beginning of the second half they put some pressure on us," said Solskjaer. "But a nice goal from Odion and a fantastic save from Sergio for Wayne's free-kick as well."

The manager also praised Shaw, who broke the deadlock with only his second ever goal for United.

"He's coming on Luke, he's getting better and better and he's in good form now," Solskjaer said. "After his injury he has worked hard and he deserves it."

With a Premier League Manchester derby coming up at Old Trafford on Sunday, Solskjaer warned Manchester City that Ighalo will be gunning for them.

"He should have had a third," said Solskjaer of the two-goal hero.
