Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reckons his team can get Barcelona flustered in their Champions League quarter-final second leg on Tuesday.

Barcelona lead 1-0 from the first leg at Old Trafford and will be favourites to progress, but Solskjaer also reckons he has a plan to deal with Lionel Messi and Co.

“We know that if we are at our best and if we make Barcelona… because we had them flustered at times here as well,” he said.

“Yes, they controlled the game towards the end, they had the possession but they never really bothered us in our own half.

“I rested a few here to be ready for Tuesday, but we have a decent plan, I hope. I hope it’s decent. It’s a plan anyway.”

Neither team was at their best in a disappointing first leg, although Solskjaer will know his team did not manage a single shot on target at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils come into the game after an unconvincing win over West Ham on Saturday, while Barcelona fielded a very youthful team in a 0-0 draw against Huesca.
