As quoted by the Daily Mail, Solskjaer said: "I can't really comment on Gareth Bale or specific players. It was a big step backwards, I have to say".

The Norwegian said his side have "got to go again" after the global break as they bid for a top-four finish in the Premier League and face Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

United will return to action on Saturday 30 March with an important Premier League match against Watford at Old Trafford, with a victory clearly needed in the fight to finish in the top four.

Ashley Young, Chris Smalling, Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw have been the favoured foursome for Solskjaer of late at the back.

Solskjaer has managed Pogba well, but must ensure his big-money midfielder contributes more to the team when United are not playing well.

Up front, Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial are still recovering full fitness after recent injuries and their lack of sharpness showed.

Solskjaer continued: "Some of the players go away with the national teams and they'll enjoy the break".

New Zealand Terror Attack
Police Commissioner Mike Bush said 49 people had been killed at two mosques and one man in his late 20s charged with murder . New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern called the attack " one of New Zealand's darkest days ".

At least Solskjaer's natural positivity will be of comfort to disappointed fans.

"It's something natural that you can't perform to the highest level all the time", he said.

"We'll be ready to push again. Against Arsenal we just couldn't score, and this was poor".

Manchester United have been on a rich vein of form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced the sacked Jose Mourinho as interim manager in December.

Asked if preventing City from completing a clean sweep would be an added bonus for United, the Serbia global midfielder told ESPN FC: "Of course".

"We are looking forward to this tie and are happy to be here". He and his players have to regroup and rediscover the magic formula.
