Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reacts to Anthony Elanga eye-catching display vs Wolves

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said he was pleased with the performance of Anthony Elanga against Wolves on Sunday afternoon in the Premier League.

A depleted Man United team snatched a well-deserved 2-1 win over Wolverhampton away from home to become the latest team to go a season without a defeat on the road.

Anthony Elanga opened the scoring with a beautiful header in the first half and the academy forward was unlucky not to have scored from his first two chances.

Alex Telles telegraphed Elanga with a beautiful cross but the teenager failed to control the ball or failed to have shot on goal with his first touch.

A few minutes later, the youngster was presented with another chance from a close range but his left-footed strike was way off target at best.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thought the young Manchester United attacker could have gotten a hat-trick on his second senior Premier League appearance.

Solskjaer told BT Sport: “He [Anthony Elanga] could’ve had two more! Just being confident to get in there again.

“Very pleased with him and he’s got a bright future ahead of him.”

Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 24 away matches in the Premier League and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer expressed how proud he was to have achieved such.

“Yeah, yeah… then again our home form hasn’t been the greatest,” Solskjaer added. “But what an achievement of course to go a season undefeated.

“That’s something we’ll be proud of.”

Nelson Semedo scored the equaliser but Juan Mata scored the match-winning goal from the penalty spot just before the half-time whistle.
