“He has done a very good job. That speculation is there for a reason – because he has done well. But it’s not my job to rate managers, my focus is on me and my team.”

Solskjaer rubbished the claim that the Wembley visit will be his first big test since taking over the club.
“No we have had tests, Newcastle away is a test and first game how everyone reacted is a test, first home game with the crowd is a test, every single game you get tested.
“But this is against top, top side. If we want to go closer and get past them we need a good performance and a good result.”
“You always adapt to any opposition. We play one of the best teams in the league. Of course we have got to be aware of their strengths.
“But I have been brought in a way that we need to attack teams. That is our strength, going forward, both as a team when you look at us now with the way we have played.
“We will not get as many chances to attack against [Spurs] as we have had before so we have got to be ready for when we get hold of the ball, to play well with it and make sure we use the whole pitch because Wembley is a decent-sized pitch as well.”
