Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, has said his team are better in shootouts than games, after they needed penalties to progress into the Carabao Cup fourth round against Rochdale.
Daniel James scored the winning kick, after 16-year-old Luke Matheson cancelled out Mason Greenwood’s opener, to send the tie to a shootout following a 1-1 draw in 90minutes.
“We handled it [the shoot out] really well.
“Everyone wanted to take penalties as they did against AC Milan in Cardiff [during pre-season].
“I’m very pleased with the confidence. You know we’re better in penalty shootouts than in proper games,” Solskjaer told reporters after the game.
United will now travel to Chelsea in the next round.
