Ed Woodward should not be fooled by the score.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær made his point when he turned to his bench moments after Dean Henderson had prevented Brighton’s Leandro Trossard from cancelling out Scott McTominay’s goal. After intending to give Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford the night off, the manager called them into action and United pulled clear to reach the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.
