Sanchez back in United squad for Barca clash

Hernandez warming

Ole Gunnar Solskjær insists his strikers must step up against Barcelona

Solskjaer's side failed to register a single shot on target in the game - the first time they have done that in a European home match since 2005. They made things tough for us.

"Definitely, 100%. Someone needs to explain why a Wednesday night first leg becomes a Tuesday second leg in the Champions League". We know we need to perform better and play ourselves.

Although they warmed up for the game with a goalless draw away to Huesca, Ernesto Valverde rang in the changes for that game.

United are not the favourites for the fixture and so will need every small advantage they could get.

Solskjaer said he will not be anxious if United do not score early and is aware they may have to be patient if they are to proceed to the semi-finals for the first since 2011. "He is one of the best goalkeepers in the world right now", said Ter Stegen. We had a couple of decent chances last week, but when you cant work the keeper you cant score. "We have to take a deep breath and take those chances".

Solskjaer's side battled to a 2-1 win over West Ham in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Saturday night thanks to Paul Pobga's late victor from the penalty spot.

"That's the $100 million question - who can score the goals", the manager, back at the stadium where he scored the 1999 Champions League final victor, said.

"If you put your life, determination and everything you have, you get what you deserve", he said. "We can't say we are just going to rely on fate".

"If you want to win, if you want to play at Man United you have to have a personality", Solskjaer said.

Alexis Sanchez was named among United's travelling contingent. "He has been injured and has not had a fantastic season so far so let's hope that he can end it well because we're at the business end of the season now".

Solskjaer added: "Fitness wise he's available and of course, for Alexis who's been here and played here, when he's on the pitch he wants to prove a point for us as well".

Solskjaer called on his players to use the experience of knocking out Paris Saint-Germain in the last 16 against the odds to inspire them to an unlikely victory.
