Solskjaer claims Man Utd’s recent comebacks will be haunting RB Leipzig
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Manchester United have already got into the heads of tonight's Champions League opponents RB Leipzig.
United must avoid defeat to reach the last 16, with Solskjaer claiming their recent run of comeback wins will have Leipzig running scared.
Solskjaer's side have gone behind in all five of their away games in the Premier League this season and staged epic comebacks to win them all.
That, said Solskjaer, will be playing on the minds of Leipzig's players ahead of tonight's pressure-filled tie in Germany, knowing United never know when they are beaten.
“It’s great for us, knowing we don’t give up,” said Solskjaer.
“The character is getting into this team. United have a tradition and history and opponents would probably know about that as well.
“We’re just working hard to get into people’s heads that might happen, so they can’t switch off.
“When we saw this group we didn’t expect to be through before the last game.
“We could have done it ourselves before now, but we’re pleased to get here and to have this chance.”

Solskjaer is confident his players can handle the pressure and get the job done.
“The players are here and are Manchester United players because they have qualities we look for,” said Solskjaer.
“I’m sure they'll prove the reason why they are here and they will show it.
“The character of the group is getting better and better and we’re looking forward to the game.
“We look at the games, especially Istanbul away, when we could have got three points.
“That’s just the way we do things, we make it hard for ourselves. That's been the way ever since I played.”
United will be without strikers Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial, both of whom came off injured in the 3-1 win at West Ham, although David De Gea, who missed that game, is fit.
