Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - We will go there to win

"We've given ourselves a great opportunity.

"We wanted to give ourselves the chance to head there and get into the Champions League by beating them. Now, we'd be OK with a draw, but we'll be going there to win. You'll prepare as you always do to go and win the game.

"We've got three days now... the extra day before Sunday will make us 100-per-cent fresh."

"It will be absolutely perfect. It will be all in.

"The players have been fantastic. We've got one last opportunity. Whatever the result was today, we needed a result next week.

"I always felt that no matter how well you do, there will always be disappointment. Others will be gratified with the work done over the past 17 months to be in this position. I know there will be both feelings.

The players, what they've done in the past 17 months, to put themselves in this position, it's brilliant.
