Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'We still have work to do in Champions League'

:Headline: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'We still have work to do in Champions League':
The Red Devils got back on track in the Champions League by beating Istanbul Basaksehir at an empty Old Trafford on Tuesday evening.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not taking Champions League progress for granted despite taking a giant step towards the last-16 with a 4-1 victory against Istanbul Basaksehir.

Having opened Group H with stunning victories against Paris St Germain and RB Leipzig, defeat to the Turkish champions at the start of November threatened to derail the Red Devils' Group H campaign.

But United got back on track at an empty Old Trafford on Tuesday evening, with Bruno Fernandes' brace added to by Marcus Rashford's penalty and a late goal from substitute Daniel James.

"He's a winner, he wants the team to win and he wants the team to do well. I think it shows today that he can do more than just take penalties."

Fernandes added to his thumping opener after Basaksehir goalkeeper Mert Gunok flapped at a cross and the Portuguese looked set to have the chance to wrap up a first-half hat-trick.

But United's regular penalty taker – who fired home the spot-kick that saw off West Brom on Saturday – selflessly gave the ball to Rashford to score from 12 yards.

"Of course, every player wants to score a hat-trick, you know?" Fernandes told BT Sport.

"But after the game (against West Brom) in the Premier League I told Rashy he will take the next one. I remembered that.

"Also Rashy is one of the top scorers in the Champions League so I think it will be important for him to keep going there and taking that confidence.

"As I say, it doesn't matter who takes the penalties, the most important (thing) is scoring. When the team scores, I score too."
