'Bit Lucky, Bit flukey' Solskjaer claims Manchester United has the tradition of winning games late

Manchester United won it late yesterday against Wolves as Marcus Rashford's stoppage-time strike was deflected into Rui Patricio's net.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted he is happy with the win though the goal came very late he will take the positive aspect of the game as the boys did a wonderful job all through the 90 minutes.

Being the last game of the year '2020' for United, they are now two points behind leaders Liverpool and a point ahead of Leicester City who seats third on the log.

"Bit lucky, bit flukey, but that's what happens when you put teams under pressure,” Solskjaer told BBC Sport after the game.

“It was a point we brought up early in the season in a meeting. We didn’t win many points towards the end of games and we have a tradition for it at this club.

"That has happened so many times at that end and now we have won quite a few points towards the end of games and that is both a mental and physical aspect.

“We’ve got a group now that is more robust both mentally and physically. We have gone through some tough training periods, played loads of games and they are getting fitter and fitter.

“The fitter you are, the more you can do. But mentally as well, it gives you a boost knowing you can win games towards the end.”
