''If You Don't Risk You Don't Win'' - How Changes Paid Off For Manchester United Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
Ole Gunnar Solskajer made six changes to the Manchester United side which went to Fulham today and they still ended up winning 3-0.
The Norwegian's remarkable winning run since taking over from Jose Mourinho in December goes on and now the Red Devils find themselves in the top four of the Premier League for the first time in what feels like an eternity.
United were comfortable winners against Fulham and later Solskjaer said he had no qualms about making major changes to his line-up with some huge games on the horizon including the Champions League Round of 16 clash with Paris Saint-Germain.
"If you don't risk, you don't win," a defiant Solskjaer told Sky Sports.
"There's always an element of risk when you make so many changes but it's a squad game and you have to trust the players. I didn't feel there was any problem using any of these players.
"In the first 10 minutes we were put under pressure but after we scored the first goal we were different class I thought. The way we controlled the second half was the thing that pleased me most today. We slowed the tempo down and could have had four or five. It was different to what we did against Leicester City so that's another step in the right direction."
When asked about a tactical change in the second half which enabled Paul Pogba to play further forward, Solskjaer laughed: "That's the players finally doing what they're told. I was very pleased all round."
