They never had a go at Barcelona or tried to, in such a massive game where the fans are up for it. In all probability, a push for Champions League qualification next season is all that remains for United now and that's going to be a massive stretch too.

"This is a "must win" game for them".

Paul Scholes has urged Paul Pogba to snap out of his poor run of form ahead of Manchester United's Premier League clash with West Ham.

Luke Shaw and Ashley Young are suspended for the game but Solskjær has a few more options at full-back to choose from this weekend, with Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo available after injury, though midfielder Nemanja Matic is not quite ready to return.

In that particular match, the Frenchman bagged two goals to help guide the Red Devils to a 3-0 win at Craven Cottage.
